How to Report Suspicious/Inappropriate Behavior
It is every adult's moral responsibility to protect children and youth from abuse or neglect by reporting to the appropriate authorities.
To report known or suspected neglect or abuse, call the New York State Child Abuse Hotline: 1-800-342-3720.
If you think a child (under the age of eighteen) is in immediate danger, call 911.
