Clay County targets elder abuse
MOORHEAD -- The Clay County Commission on Tuesday endorsed using $290,000 in grant money to train law enforcement officers and other officials on how to recognize and address elder abuse.
Clay County Attorney Brian Melton, whose office will receive the grant money over a three-year period, said it isn't known how widespread the problem of elder abuse is in the county.
But he said nationwide it is believed as many as one out of four Americans will be victimized.
