    Great news - the recently published Introduction to Homeland Security: Policy, Organization, and Administration by Willard M. Oliver, Nancy E. Marion, and Joshua B. Hill was warmly reviewed by Professor Ostrowidzki of El Paso Community College. Professor Ostrowidzki said "Introduction to Homeland Security: Policy, Organization, and Administration is appropriate for my [Intro to Homeland Security] course because it provides a basic, but developed overview of homeland security regarding the United States. The book’s approach is logical and easy to understand for students at the early college level."

    • While residents of  long-term care facilities (research shows up to 36%) may be victims of abuse or neglect, most older adults live in their own homes and, therefore, most elder abuse occurs in the community, by people known to the vulnerable adult.  The vast majority is perpetrated by family members.
