Adult Protection

Adult Protection and Vulnerable Adult Investigations
Adult Protection strives to improve the quality of life for Crow Wing County's most vulnerable citizens. These individuals are unable to protect themselves or provide for their own physical, emotional, or mental needs due to age or handicapping conditions. Adult Protection Services focus on safety and well-being but also works towards reducing neglect, abuse, or exploitation of vulnerable adults through outreach and education. Vulnerable adult investigations are completed in conjunction with the Crow Wing County Attorney's Office, Crow Wing County Sheriff's Department, and state licensing through Social Services.
