Author of :  "Financial Abuse of the Elderly; A Detective’s Case Files of Exploitation Crimes"

One of the fastest growing industry's in the US is the field of predatory fiduciary's who prey on elderly individuals, for profit.  Operating under cover of corrupt probate courts 2.6 billion is estimated to be stolen from the elderly each year as victims are targeted, kidnapped from their homes and families, isolated, forcibly medicated with massive doses of psychotropic drugs not approved for use on the elderly and robbed of their life time savings and assets.

 Joe Roubicek has investigated over a thousand exploitation of the elderly crimes over the past 25 years, primarily during his 20 year career with the Fort Lauderdale Police Department.  In 1994 he testified before the Florida House and Senate to improve laws designed to protect the elderly and he contributed to the writing of Florida Statute 825.103:  Exploitation of an Elderly Person or Disabled Adult.

Joe also contributed directly to statewide training of law enforcement officers and APS investigators through the accredited Florida Department of Law Enforcement and university ofMiami advanced training courses.

Joe has testified as an expert in both criminal and civil courts, and has been a keynote speaker on exploitation crimes throughout the country.
