What is Child Abuse and Neglect? Recognizing the Signs and Symptoms
Did You Know?
Many cases of child abuse and neglect are never reported, even when mandated by law. As a result, most states impose penalties for failure to report suspected child abuse or neglect. These penalties—which can include fines or even imprisonment—apply to certain professions, such as education, health-care, law enforcement, and others. Learn more about your state's laws and help your community members understand the consequences for failing to report or making false accusations of suspected child abuse or neglect.
For a list of state-by-state resources on mandatory reporting, visit the State Training Resources for Mandatory Reporters of Child Abuse and Neglect web page.
