How to Report Child Maltreatment


If you suspect child abuse or neglect, Call CHILDLINE at 1-800-932-0313

If a child is in immediate danger, first call 911. Then report it to CHILDLINE.

If you are a Penn State employee, volunteer, or independent contractor you must also email AD72@psu.edu communicating that a report has been made. Penn State policy requires all employees, volunteers, and independent contractors – regardless of your status as a mandated reporter – to report all instances of suspected child abuse. For more information, please refer to Policy AD72.
