Information Needed When Reporting
Your report is anonymous and confidential. Please provide as much information as possible about the alleged victim and perpetrator, including contact information, circumstances, specific safety concerns and physical and behavioral indicators of the victim and/or alleged perpetrator.

Mandatory Reporters
Colorado law requires professionals, such as school and child care personnel, social workers, medical personnel, law enforcement, licensed counselors, clergy members and others, to make a report if they have reason to believe a child is or will be subjected to abuse or neglect. Arapahoe County offers free training for mandatory reporters working in the county to discuss this responsibility, how to make a report and what happens next.
