    The Reporting Process
    • Everyone is a permissive reporter and is encouraged to make a report of suspected child abuse. Reporters of suspected child abuse fall into two categories. 
    • Mandated reporters are those adults who come into direct contact with children in the course of their employment or volunteer of a regularly scheduled program or activity, who accepts responsibility for a child.
    • The trigger to report is a reasonable suspicion that a child is being abused.  Permissive reporters may report anonymously; mandated reporters may not.

    Making a Report of Child Abuse
    • Reports of suspected child abuse are to be made immediately.
    • If the child is in imminent danger, call 911
    • Reports may be made orally by phone or electronically
    • Inform the supervisor or person in charge of your program that a report was made
