Reporting Child Abuse and/or Neglect

Any individual concerned for a child can report abuse or neglect.

If you suspect a child under the age of 18 is being abused or neglected, or is at risk for abuse or neglect, you should make a report to your local county department of social services.

If this is after normal business hours and/or is an emergency please call 911.
