For mandated reporters, it can be difficult to call and make a report of suspected abuse or neglect knowing it could take up to 30 minutes or more to complete the process by phone.
Thanks to a new online program, those reports can now be completed online. If you are a mandated reporter, please register at your earliest convenience. It doesn’t take long and will save you time later if you have to make a report. The website is available at all hours, every day.
When filing online, reporters have no obligation to file an additional written report (DHHS-3200) or to call the hotline. The hotline remains open for oral reports, especially emergencies. Online reporting is simply a second option.
