Effective July 1, 2015, Minnesota will have a new reporting system for the public, and mandated reporters, to report suspected abuse of vulnerable adults.
The Minnesota Adult Abuse Reporting Center (MAARC) will be a centralized place for the public to call in reports of suspected abuse. It will be staffed 24/7. When calls come in, the intake person will send the information about the suspected abuse to the appropriate lead investigative agency. This should eliminate confusion about where and who people should call. Mandated reporters, such as law enforcement, educators, doctors and nurses, will be able to submit reports of suspected abuse through a new web-based system.
The number to call at MAARC if you suspect abuse of a vulnerable adult is: 1-844-880-1574.
