Story Behind the Curve

Adult Protective Services investigates allegations of the abuse, neglect, or exploitation of vulnerable adults, regardless of their location in the state. The measure shows the work performed by APS at facilities licensed by DLP. This measurement is provided because of concerns raised by the advocacy community that APS is not active at licensed facilities.
