Minnesota Department of Human Services is launching a new central system for reporting the suspected maltreatment of vulnerable adults on July 1, 2015. The Minnesota Adult Abuse Reporting Center offers a single, state-wide common entry point that is available 24/7 with a toll free number for the general public at (844) 880-1574. Mandated reporters, including law enforcement, educators, doctors, nurses , social workers and other licensed professionals, will also have access to a new web-based reporting system.
“We are excited to have this resource available for residents in Blue Earth County and throughout the State of Minnesota that will offer a new platform for the public in reporting possible maltreatment of vulnerable adults,” stated Lanette Ayers, Blue Earth County Human Services Supervisor. “Our hope is to share information with as many organizations and individuals as possible throughout the County so that the public is informed about this new state-wide system.”
More information and access for reporting can also be found on the Minnesota Department of Human Services website at www.mn.gov/dhs/adult-protection/.
