Cherokee County, Oklahoma Resources

Report elder neglect, abuse, financial exploitation.

Cherokee County was established in 1906 and according to the 2010 census a population of 46,987.

Each year, thousands of Oklahoma’s vulnerable adults suffer abuse, neglect, and exploitation by family members and other caregivers. Many victims are frail and vulnerable and cannot help themselves and depend on others to meet their basic needs.

Our vulnerable adults need our support and protection. If you or someone you know is concerned about the well-being of an adult friend, neighbor or relative, Adult Protective Services (APS) is there to listen and respond. Adult Protective Services specialists interview the vulnerable adult and determine whether maltreatment has occurred. The Adult Protective Services (APS) specialists help connect vulnerable adults to the services they need to stay safely in their homes and community whenever possible.
