Meet Officer Jon Bailey

In his 22 years of service on the Waltham Police Department, Officer Jon Bailey has received commendations and awards from a wide array of groups and organizations including the Waltham City Council, the Massachusetts State Senate, and the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys. He is the kind of ally that Springwell’s Protective Services Program is thrilled to have in planning a comprehensive approach to addressing elder abuse.

Officer Bailey, the Waltham Police Department’s expert on elder affairs, takes his role very seriously. With his comprehensive knowledge of the laws and statutes that relate to elder abuse, he is a resource for Protective Service staff. Officer Bailey is always willing to do what is needed to help elderly victims of abuse: coming along on a home visit to help with safety and access to a residence, sharing information where possible, and making himself available to meet with Springwell staff to strategize on particularly difficult cases.

Protective Services works best when there is coordination and communication, especially between our team and law enforcement. Jon Bailey exemplifies the kind of officer that makes this important relationship work so well.
