Report abuse or neglect of children, the elderly, or people with disabilities.
To report an emergency, call 911. To report child abuse or neglect, call 1-800-252-5400.
Child abuse and neglect are against the law in Texas, and so is failure to report it.
If you suspect a child has been abused or mistreated, you are required to report it to the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services or to a law enforcement agency.
You are required to make a report within 48 hours of the time you suspected the child has been or may be abused or neglected. For more information, please click here.
