Report Child Abuse

Where should I report my concerns?

If it is an emergency, call 911. They can ensure the immediate safety of a child and get medical attention if needed. If it is not an emergency, call your local child abuse hotline, county social services department or local law enforcement agency.

If possible, reports of suspected abuse or neglect in Colorado should be made to the county in which the activity is taking place.  Please report abuse or neglect to the local county department of social services. Their phone number and office information can be found below.
