Wednesday July 1st
marks the beginning of a change to adult protection reporting around the state. The Minnesota Adult Abuse Reporting Center (MAARC) opens today. The centralized phone center will be open 24/7/365 for reports of financial exploitation, caregiver neglect or self-neglect, or verbal, physical, sexual or emotional abuse. Good faith reporting of suspected maltreatment is encouraged. The identity of reporters is protected. Reporters can ask to receive notice of the initial outcome of their report.
What will not change is the Chaska Police Department’s commitment to investigate concerns in cooperation with Carver County Social Services. Our officers will respond to reports from MAARC and also directly from the public. As always, if you have an emergency situation, or even just questions for an officer, please call us: 952-448-4200.
Anyone can report suspected maltreatment of a vulnerable adult to the Minnesota Adult Abuse Reporting Center at: 844-880-1574.
