Training for mandatory reporters and others is now available at ColoradoAPS.com.
Adult Protective Services offers protective services to prevent, reduce, or eliminate the current or potential risk of mistreatment, exploitation, or self-neglect to the at-risk adult using community based services and resources, health care services, family and friends when appropriate, and other support systems.
The County Department receives reports of mistreatment, exploitation, and or self-neglect of at-risk adults and determines the need for an investigation or assessment. If the County determines that the report involves an at-risk adult and mistreatment, exploitation, or self-neglect then further an investigation will be initiated.
