REPORTING CHILD ABUSE AND NEGLECT
Don’t wait until you can “prove” child abuse — make your report whenever your worries about the safety of a child turn into suspicions that the child is being abused or neglected. Before you call, organized your facts (times, names, places, specific suspicions of abuse or neglect, and other details.) If the abuse is happening right now, call now — the longer you wait, the more likely the evidence will disappear.
|The source online for reporting is the US Department of Health and Human Services, in their Children’s Bureau listing on the Web.||You can also check the first pages of your local phone book for emergency numbers to report child abuse. Or, you can call
