Vulnerable Adult Services


Adult Protection strives to improve the quality of life for our most vulnerable citizens. Adult Protection Services focus on safety and well being but also works towards reducing neglect, abuse or exploitation of vulnerable adults through outreach and education. Vulnerable Adult Investigations are completed in conjunction with the Law Enforcement, the County Attorney's Office and state licensing agencies. As authorized by Minnesota Statutes, Brown County has an Adult Protection team in which there is representation from Brown County Human Services, Health care and Mental Health Providers, Law Enforcement, Brown County Attorney's Office, Brown County Victim's Services, as well as a faith-based organization.
