Financial Abuse Specialist Team
The Financial Abuse Specialist Team (FAST) was formed in 1999, with members from APS, the Office of the Public Guardian, the Office of the District Attorney and the Office of County Counsel. The team's mission is to identify, investigate, prevent, and remedy financial abuse of elders and dependent adults.
The key components of the team are rapid response, confidentiality, and a multi-disciplinary approach. FAST speaks out against financial abuse, educates the public, and supports legislative changes that deter financial abuse of elders and dependent adults. Through its motivated members, FAST can promptly and decisively prevent and remedy financial abuse.
