The purpose of this book is to give officers an overview of the aging process, as well as to educate the street officers and enhance their sensitivity to the challenges and the needs of the older population. Learning about aging can provide insight into a police officer¹s own aging process as well as provide understanding about how aging affects parents and friends. It can also help to change any stereotypes or myths many hold on to, or at least make us aware of them. A general discussion of aging topics is followed by specific suggestions for police officers which will aid them in the performance of their jobs. The text provides a clear, concise overview of the aging process and how and why this relates to the job of law enforcement officer. Examples of successful programs are highlighted and extensive resources are provided to further aid the officer. The book is designed so that officers can carry it with them in their briefcase or car seat organizer. This will facilitate refreshing their memory as necessary and will help keep the resource information close at hand when needed. It is hoped that through reading this book and discussing the issues that arise, officers can be better sensitized to the problems and challenges of the aging population and better allow police professionals to serve the needs of seniors throughout their career.
