HOW TO REPORT CHILD MALTREATMENT
If you suspect child abuse or neglect, CALL CHILDLINE 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.
