What information do I have to provide if I report child abuse or neglect?

Generally, the following information will be requested:

  • Exact name, address and telephone number of the parent, guardian or custodian
  • Current location and condition of the child, including suspected injury
  • Exact description of what you saw or the child told you
  • If you have kept a log of concerning behaviors or suspected abuse that will be helpful
  • Specific details and information makes it easier for the person taking the report to assess the situation quickly.
  • Other pertinent information the reporter may find helpful in assessing the allegations
