Report Abuse

To report abuse:

Anyone suspected that a child is being abused should report it to their state child abuse hotline or call the hotline (1-800-4-A-CHILD).

Visiting a state’s child abuse website will also help you learn about mandatory child abuse reporting laws that you may be subject to.

Also remember that if you think that a child is in immediate danger from child abuse or neglect, then you should call 911.

New Orleans Police Department Child Abuse Unit : 504-658-5267

To make a report of suspected child abuse or neglect when the suspect is the child’s caregiver or lives in the child’s home, contact the Office of Community Services-Child protection in the parish where the child lives.

Orleans Parish OCS: 504-680-9000. For contact numbers in other parishes click here.
