Other States’ Toll-Free Child Abuse Reporting Numbers

Each State designates specific agencies to receive and investigate reports of suspected child abuse and neglect. Typically, this responsibility is carried out by child protective services (CPS) within a Department of Social Services, Department of Human Resources, or Division of Family and Children Services. In some States, police departments also may receive reports of child abuse or neglect. State Child Abuse and Neglect Reporting Numbers (Source – Child Welfare Information Gateway – revised 3/2016)
