As a NY Mandated Reporter, How Do I Report Suspected Child Abuse?
If you suspect child neglect or abuse, you can place a call through to the State’s Central Register (SCR) on their official number -1(800) 342 3720. As a mandated reporter in New York, you can also call 311 to make your report. Also, if you think the child is in immediate danger, you can call 911.
You will be requested to submit a mandated reporter form to your local Child Protection Borough office within 48 hours of rendering the oral version. The form can be downloaded online (download available here) or through your local office. You can check out our workshop that is approved by NYSED to learn more about reporting and preventing child abuse and neglect.
