Justice Boniello appointed to state panel on elder abuse

NIAGARA FALLS – State Supreme Court Justice Ralph A. Boniello, III, was appointed to the state court system’s Committee on Elder Abuse which will develop programs and policies to deal with case involving the elderly, officials announced Thursday.

The panel is to meet in New York City at the end of September to begin developing programs to raise awareness of issues involving the elderly and provide training for government workers to help them identify the symptoms of elder abuse. Boniello said he agrees that government programs must be in place to prompt immediate investigations of elder abuse allegations by the proper authorities once such situations have been identified.
