The DPPS works to protect adults with disabilities from abuse and neglect. Their website offers information on what consitutes abuse, official forms for reporting it, and the hotline number to call when abuse is suspected.

In cases of suspected abuse (physical, sexual, verbal, financial, or neglect) of a person with a disability, the DPPC:

  • Receives and screens reports of suspected abuse, neglect and deaths through a 24-Hour Hotline
  • Conducts investigations
  • Oversees investigations conducted on DPPC's behalf by other state agencies: Department of Developmental Services (DDS), Department of Mental Health (DMH) and the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission (MRC)
  • Ensures that the appropriate protective services are provided when abuse has been substantiated or risk is determined
  • Provides training and education for service providers, law enforcement personnel and the public
