Mandated Reporter Information

Certain professionals, including, doctors, therapists, teachers and others are mandated to report abuse and neglect observed in the course of their work and must include their name. The Child Abuse and Reporting Act, or Penal Code Section 11165.7, includes a list of all mandated reporters and requirements. Mandated reporter information is also kept confidential.

Mandated reporters must also send a written report within 36 hours of the telephonic report. The written report must be on the State of California's Suspected Child Abuse Report (SCAR) Form (PDF).

Please submit the Suspected Child Abuse Report (SCAR) in the following way:
