This reporting system has been provided for your convenience to report suspected
instances of abuse / neglect which occurred in Kentucky and do not require an emergency
response. A situation where a child or adult is at immediate risk of abuse / neglect
that could result in death or serious harm is considered an emergency.
- Call your local law enforcement agency or 911 if the situation is a life-threatening
- If the incident you are reporting occurred outside Kentucky, please
for a listing of State Numbers.
- If you wish to speak to someone, call Kentucky’s Statewide Child Abuse Hotline Number
Note: By using this website you are making a non – emergency report via email. The
email box is not monitored on weekends and holidays; therefore, your information
will not be screened by intake staff until the next business day. If your concern
is an emergency related to a child or adult, please call the Kentucky Hotline number
