Online System for Child Abuse & Neglect Reporting (OSCR)
Initial Emergency Questions


Should I call the Hotline or report the incident using this online reporting feature? An answer of Yes or Unknown to any of the below questions will require you to call the Hotline.



This site is designed to allow Mandated Reporters the ability to report non-emergency child abuse or neglect to the Missouri Department of Social Services Children’s Division. If the situation is an emergency, please call the Hotline immediately.


Below is a link to the Missouri Statute which provides the definition of a Mandated Reporter.

Please answer the following questions to determine if you should call the Hotline or report online:

1. In your professional opinion is the child(ren) at immediate risk of serious harm?

2. Is the child(ren) actively suicidal or recently exposed to an active meth lab?

3. Is there alleged sexual abuse with access to the victim child or any child in the home by the alleged perpetrator?

4. Is there alleged serious physical abuse with access to the victim child or any child in the home by the alleged perpetrator?

5. Is there a child fatality with any suspicious indicators of abuse or neglect?

6. Is the child 18 years or older and in Children’s Division custody?

Note: All Newborn Crisis Assessments are emergencies and must be reported by phone to the Child Abuse and Neglect Hotline at 800-392-3738.
