Reporting Process

Who do I call?

If you suspect a child was abused or neglected, immediately contact the Office of Children’s Services (OCS) hotline. As of September 1, 2020 all reports of sexual abuse should be made to both OCS and to law enforcement. You can call at any time, any day of the week. The OCS hotline is open 24/7.

Care enough to call: 1-800-478-4444

Email: reportchildabuse@alaska.gov

or Fax: 907-269-3939

If you are unable to reach OCS immediately or within no later than 24 hours, you must contact the law enforcement agency responsible for your area. And again, reports of sexual abuse should be made to both OCS and to law enforcement.

In an emergency situation where the child is facing an immediate danger, you should call 911, or the nearest law enforcement agency, and take whatever actions you can without putting yourself at risk of harm to make the child safe until authorities take over.

In this video a reporter describes an incident from the point of time when the child discloses to the time of reporting, as well as follow-up actions by the reporter, the Alaska State Troopers and the protective family members of the child victim.
