New Georgia Laws For Reporting Child Abuse

Posted on Sep 11 2012 - 7:51pm

The Georgia mandated reporting law was expanded to include volunteers working for child serving organizations which includes Boy Scout Volunteers. The law states that any volunteer “having reasonable cause to believe that a child has been abused shall report or cause reports of that abuse to be made”. This report must be made within 24 hours. All child service organization personnel (employees as well as volunteers) are now mandated reporters.

All persons involved in Scouting shall report to local authorities any good-faith suspicion or belief that any child is or has been physically or sexually abused, physically or emotionally neglected, exposed to any form of violence or threat, exposed to any form of sexual exploitation, including the possession, manufacture, or distribution of child pornography, online solicitation, enticement, or showing of obscene material. You may not abdicate this reporting responsibility to any other person.

Steps to Reporting Child Abuse

  1. Ensure the child is in a safe environment.
  2. In cases of emergencies, call 911 immediately. In addition, if you suspect abuse is in the Scout's troop, home or family, or by any caregiver you are required to contact the local child abuse hotline.
  3. Although you have an independent, non transferable duty to report abuse to authorities within 24 hours, you can contact the Council for assistance in making your report.
  4. You should document your report including notes of exactly what you reported the name of the authority and caseworker as well as a case number if assigned.
  5. Notify the Scout executive or his/her designee. To report an incident to BSA, contact Tom Wilson - W (770-956-3173) or C (404-925-7537)

Georgia Child Protective Services maintains an after- hours hotline for reporting child abuse.

The CPS After-Hours Call Center is currently ONLY for reporting child abuse/neglect during the times that local DFCS offices are closed, but will eventually move towards a statewide CPS Call Center that is operational 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. Reports of child abuse and neglect can be made to 1-855-GA CHILD (1-855-422-4453).

Cobb County DFCS is available Monday - Friday, 8:00 am-5:00 pm at (770) 528-5000.
