Report Abuse and Neglect

Human Services

Cabarrus County Human Services seeks to stop abuse, neglect and exploitation of disabled and elderly adults and children.

You can help us with that process.

Adult Protective Services

Disabled adults are vulnerable to abuse, neglect and exploitation. The Cabarrus County Adult Protective Services receives and evaluates reports to determine whether disabled adults are in need of protective services.

If you have reason to believe that an older or disabled adult has been abused, neglected or exploited, North Carolina law requires that you contact Adult Protective Services at 704-920-1400 or, after hours, the Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office at 704-920-3000.

Reporting parties are protected from civil and criminal liability.

Child Protective Services

Child Protective Services strives to ensure safe, permanent, nurturing families for children by protecting them from abuse and neglect while attempting to preserve the family unit.

If you suspect a child is being abused or neglected, contact the Department of Human Services at 704-920-1400. For reports after hours contact the Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office at 704-920-3000.

If you are a professional, you may make an online report.
