How to Report Child Abuse?
Suspected abuse is not required to be proven. Please, report your suspicions and do not attempt to conduct your own investigation. It’s the role of the Children and Youth Service and law enforcement to investigate any suspicions of abuse.
If you suspect child abuse, please report it to ChildLine at 1-800-932-0313.
You should also contact your local police department or dial 911 if you suspect a child may be in danger.
If you are a Mandated Reporter, you are required to report suspected abuse. For additional information on who is considered a mandated reporter, click HERE.
