Adult Protective Services

Adult Protective Services investigates reports of abuse, neglect, and exploitation of adults 60 years of age or older and incapacitated adults age 18 or older. If protective services are needed and accepted by the individual, a wide range of services to stop the mistreatment or prevent further mistreatment are available. These services include social and legal services, emergency assistance and assistance in obtaining other forms of substitute decision making, including guardianship.

If you are attempting to report a concern after business hours, holidays or for an adult who does not live in the City of Petersburg, please call (888) 832-3858
