On today’s show I talked with Lindsay Greenwald, a Forensic Specialist with the Department of Human Services, Division on Aging. We discussed At Risk Adult Crime. Statistics show that 1 in 10 vulnerable adults are victims but only 1 in 23 report abuse. Just a warning for our listeners, some of the discussion of this topic may not be suitable for sensitive audiences.
Lindsay Greenwald has a Bachelors and a Masters Degree in Social Work with a focus on working with adults with developmental disabilities. She works with the Forensic Special Initiative Unit who work in Georgia to provide training, conduct monthly At Risk Adult Crime Tactics Training, and act as a liaison between law enforcement and social services.
