What to do if you suspect Child Abuse?

In Pennsylvania, if you are a mandated reporter and have “reasonable cause to suspect" a child is being abused or neglected you must report that suspicion to law enforcement or child welfare professionals—and you are required by law to do it immediately.
 
All citizens can and should report suspected child abuse.
If you live in Montgomery County and suspect or know a child is being abused or has been victimized:

  • Call 911 if you suspect a child is in immediate danger.
  • Call your local police department; and / or
  • Call Pennsylvania's Child Abuse Hotline: 1-800-932-0313; and / or
  • Call Montgomery County Office of Children and Youth: (610) 278-5800
     

Do not attempt to conduct your own investigation. Report your suspicions to the proper authorities. It is the role of the Office of Children and Youth and local law enforcement officials to investigate the report.
