Reporting Abuse and Neglect

Shelby County Job and Family Services, Children Services Division, assesses allegations of possible abuse or neglect based on reports received from the community.  Some individuals including physicians, social workers, day care providers, teachers, etc. are required by law to report their concerns to the agency.

If you have reason to believe any child under 18 (or any child with a physical or mental handicap under the age of 21) is abused or neglected, make a report.

You only need to suspect or have reason to believe that a child is at risk.  We will attempt to determine if abuse or neglect is occurring.

You can call, write, or come to Shelby County Job and Family Services with your report.

A report of suspected child abuse and neglect is confidential.  Your identity cannot be released to anyone without your permission, except under direct order from the court.

You are protected from civil or criminal liability.  Ohio law protects individuals who report allegations of abuse or neglect in good faith.

If you make a report to Children Services, you will be asked a series of questions to assist the agency in determining risk to the children being reported.

Although anonymous reports are accepted, you are encouraged to give your name to make it possible for the agency to obtain additional or clarifying information if needed.

You may make a report to Children Services by calling:

937-498-4981

M, W, TH, F, 7:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Tuesdays, 7:30 am - 6:00 pm

After business hours and on holidays and weekends reports should be made to the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office at:

937-498-1111

who will contact On-Call Children Services staff.
