Progress Report: Adult Protective Services Takes Steps to Improve Coordination with Local Law Enforcement Agencies, Report No. 06-47, May 2006
Full report in PDF format

The Department of Children and Families’ Adult Protective Services units have signed working agreements with all but one of the state’s 346 local law enforcement agencies. Some of these agreements have lapsed but are being renewed. Several of the department’s service districts have taken additional steps to improve cooperation and coordination with local law enforcement agencies, including providing in-service training and designating points of contact. The department’s central office should meet with state law enforcement associations to establish statewide policies to promote coordination between the program and local law enforcement agencies.
