How do I report a suspected case of abuse and neglect?
The Division of Children and Family Services is mandated by law to investigate complaints about child abuse and neglect. If you suspect a child to be a victim of abuse or neglect, call the ACCESS number 262-605-6582.

In relating your report, you should be able to tell the ACCESS worker the name of the child, address and age. Describe the nature of the suspected abuse or neglect, including when and where it occurred. Provide the name of the suspected perpetrators, their relationship to the child and any other information you think may be helpful. First hand information is very important.
