Report Child Abuse
If you believe a child is being abused or maltreated, you can help by making a call to the New York State Central Register of Child Abuse and Maltreatment, otherwise known as the Child Abuse Hotline. When making the call to the Child Abuse Hotline you will be connected with a child abuse expert who will walk you through the process of reporting. They will ask you a series of questions including the child’s name, date of birth, address, the child’s injuries, and relationship of the alleged offender to the child.
The hotline is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. If you suspect a child is in immediate danger, call 911.
