Developmental Disability

Protective Services

Employees of Linn County Developmental Disabilities Program and our contracted providers are all Mandatory Reporters as prescribed in ORS 430.765. All reports of suspected abuse must be reported to the appropriate agency immediately. Our office is available to take complaints of abuse or neglect during business hours at 541-967-3890, and confidential messages may be left after hours. For all immediate threats to health and safety, please call 911.

The DD program staff review complaints of abuse and immediately take steps to assess further risk. In some cases, protective services may be offered to avoid further harm. Protective services can include:

  • physical and mental status evaluations
  • alternative living arrangements
  • medical and legal services
  • advocacy
  • counseling
  • changes to staffing assignments
