How to Report Suspected Child Maltreatment:


Anyone can report suspected child abuse or neglect.  Reporting abuse or neglect can protect a child and get help for a family.  It may even save a child's life.  

Professionals, who in the course of their work, come in contact with families and children MUST report suspicion or knowledge.  A phone report must be made immediately to a "child protective agency" (Police, Sheriff, Probation, Child & Family Services) and a written report is required within 36 hours.  


CPS 24-hour phone line:  
209-558-3665 or 1-800-558-3665
