Adult Protective Services
What Information Do I Need to Provide for a Report?
When calling the Florida Abuse Hotline, be prepared to provide the following information:
- Victim’s name, address or location, approximate age, race and sex;
- Physical, mental or behavioral indications that the person is infirmed or disabled;
- Signs or indication of harm or injury or potential harm or injury (physical description or behavioral changes);
- Relationship of the alleged person responsible to the victim, if possible. If the relationship is unknown, a report will still be taken if other reporting criteria are met.
