In response to the rapidly increasing elderly population in King County, and to increases in crimes against vulnerable adults, our office has created a unit trained to address the special circumstances inherent in these cases. Our Elder Abuse team addresses the abuse of vulnerable adults, a population that includes disabled adults as well as the elderly. Our goals are three-fold:

  • to prosecute cases of neglect, financial exploitation and sexual assault of the elderly and disabled;

  • to work collaboratively with police, social service agencies, and medical professionals to improve the referral, investigation, and, ultimately, prosecution of cases of abuse and neglect of vulnerable adults;

  • and, to provide training to first responders so they can better recognize and react to such cases.

If you have questions about our Elder Abuse Team, contact:

Page Ulrey, Senior Deputy Prosecuting Attorney

Amanda Froh, Senior Deputy Prosecuting Attorney

If you suspect that a crime against a vulnerable adult is occurring or has occurred, you should do two things:

  1. Report the crime to the police by calling 911; and

  2. Report the crime to the Washington State abuse hotline: 1-866-EndHarm (1-866-363-4276).
