APS Data Book Report: 2011 / 2010

In 2011, DHS received more than 28,000 reports of abuse/neglect of vulnerable adults in community and facility care settings. We present this report annually to help us all better understand our state's abuse trends more clearly so we can target our prevention efforts to have the greatest impact.
