When you know or have reasonable suspicion that a person who cares for a child, lives with a child, or works with or around children has caused injury/harm or put the child at risk of physical injury.
Reports should be made in good faith. A report of child abuse can have a lifelong impact on a child and his or her family. Never make a false or malicious report.
If you have any doubts about whether to report a situation, call the DCFS ACCESS number at 262-605-6582 and discuss your concerns with them.
