Reporting Abuse

Individuals who suspect child abuse and/or neglect are to contact Childline at 1-800-932-0313.

Mandated reporters are required to immediately make a report if they have reasonable cause to suspect that abuse has occurred.  They can make a report by phone (1-800-932-0313) or through electronic submission (www.compass.state.pa.us/cwis).  However, if they report via phone, they must then submit an electronic report or a written CY47 (located on www.keepkidssafe.gov) to the agency, within 48 hours.  Following the submission of the report, mandated reporters are required to immediately thereafter notify the person in charge of their institution, school, facility or agency of the designated agent of the person in charge.
