  • Prevention
    Being mindful of the abuse mechanism and proactively preventing it from occurring for those at risk.
  • Proportionality
    Starting with the least intrusive intervention for the presented risk.
  • Protection
    Providing adequate support and any form of representation to vulnerable adults.
  • Partnership
    Collaborating with various organizations for the benefit of those at risk.
