Detective Joelle Slossberg-Minkler: Scams, Cons, Frauds and how to avoid being a victim

Our communities are under constant threat from a legion of scammers and con artists. Everyone is at risk but our senior citizens are particularly vulnerable. Many are lonely, trusting or impaired, and the scammers know this very well. Detective Slossberg-Minkler will talk to us about how to protect both ourselves and our loved ones from these thieves. She will show us some of the scams and tactics used, how to recognize legitimate offers from the fraudulent ones, how to avoid being victimized and what to do if you are ever the victim of a con artist.

Detective Joelle Slossberg-Minkler has been a police officer with Woodbridge for just over 11 years. For the past three years she has been in the Detective Bureau as the Department’s Community Affairs Officer and Bias Crime Officer. In this role she does presentations at schools and goes to com- munity functions as a representative of the police department. She also works with the senior community via the Senior (60+) Police Academy and the younger community via the Junior (6th - 8th grade) Police Academy. She updates the community via social media on new scams, events and safety issues. She also works closely with the Mayor and the Police Director to craft a better public image for the police department.

On her off time, she has three young children, 2, 6, and 7 and she also helps to raise money for families in Woodbridge who need help due to illness, parental death, or disaster (i.e. house fire).
