Report Child Abuse

In New Jersey, any person having reasonable cause to believe that a child has been subjected to abuse or acts of abuse is legally obligated to immediately report this information to the State Central Registry (SCR). If the child is in immediate danger, call 911 as well as 1877 NJ ABUSE (1-877-6522873). A concerned caller does not need proof to report an allegation of child abuse and can make the report anonymously.  For more information regarding how to file a report, Click Here – Tips for Reporting Child Abuse and Neglect.
