Making an Adult Protective Services Report

If you suspect that adult abuse, neglect, or exploitation has occurred or is occurring (even if you are unsure about the criteria) you may make a report Mon day through Friday between the hours of 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. to the Suffolk Department of Social Services APS Hotline number 757-514-7458, or the State APS Hotline number 888-832-3858 before or after working hours, weekends and holidays. The State APS Hotline number is accessible 24 hours per day and 365 days per year.

If possible, provide the name, address and any other information about the adult whom you suspect is being abused, neglected or exploited. Reports may be made anonymously.

You may also make an APS report in person by visiting or mail a letter to the Suffolk Department of Social Services.
