Who should report child abuse or neglect?

Any person can voluntarily report if they know or suspect that a child is being abused or neglected or has been abused or neglected in the past three years. If you are a mandated reporter and you know or suspect that a child is being abused or neglected or has been subjected to abuse or neglect within the past three years, you are required by law to report that information. The reporter's name is confidential, accessible only if the reporter consents or by a court order.
