Welcome to Maine’s Online Mandated Reporter Resource Page.
Mandated Reporters are a critical part of Maine’s Child protection system and act as an early warning network to identify suspected child abuse and neglect; promptly enough to avoid serious and long term damage to a child. Professionals who frequently encounter children in their work are in the best position to recognize and report suspected child abuse and neglect and are required by law to do so.
The Maine Office of Child and Family Services (OCFS) operates the statewide hotline for child abuse and neglect. Mandated Reporters call this hotline to make a report. Highly trained staff is available to guide callers through the process of making a report of suspected abuse and neglect. The hotline is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
