What happens after a report is made?
When you call to make a report, a child protection social worker (screener) will collect the information and determine if the allegation meets the legal definitions for further assessment. Mandated reporters must also file a written report within 72 hours of their oral report, excluding weekends and holidays. This reporter form can be sent or faxed to Washington County Child Protection. Fax reports to 651-430-8340. See more information on reporting child abuse or neglect.
