How do I Report Abuse or Neglect?
Call the county social service agency or the police where the child lives if you believe that a child is being hurt or neglected. Some people, whose jobs involve the care of children, such as doctors, teachers and ministers, are required by law to report suspected child abuse or neglect. Other people, such as neighbors or relatives are encouraged to also report if they think a child is being abused or neglected.
