Indiana law requires any adult who suspects a child is being abused or neglected to report those suspicions to state or local law enforcement. 

Reports can be made anonymously 24/7 via the Indiana Department of Child Services hotline: 1-800-800-5556. An intake specialist may ask for the following information during that call:

  • who was involved.
  • what occurred.
  • when and where it occurred.
  • the extent of any injuries sustained.
  • detailed information regarding the child, parent or alleged perpetrator’s names, addresses and phone numbers.

For more information about the hotline, visit in.gov/dcs/2971.htm.
