Child Abuse, Neglect, & Missing Children

The NJ Child Abuse Hotline has consistently received more than 80,000 calls each year for the past decade. According to NJ’s Child Welfare Data Hub, school staff continue to remain among the primary reporters of potential situations of child abuse and neglect; generally making up almost 20% of reports. Because this has been consistent over the years, the school community has been identified as primary partners in the prevention and intervention of potential child abuse and neglect situations. See the below resources to access additional information related to the prevention and intervention of child abuse and neglect.
