Mandated Reporters and Their Legal Obligations
District of Columbia law designates individuals in certain occupations and professions as mandated reporters. Mandated reporters must report known or suspected mental or physical abuse or neglect of a child known to them in their professional or official capacity to either the DC Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) at 911 or the Child and Family Services Agency (CFSA). The CFSA hotline, at (202) 671.7233, is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. DC law also requires mandated reporters to complete the Mandated Reporter Training offered by the CFSA, which is available at: dc.mandatedreporter.org.
