Mandatory Reporting

If you know or suspect that a child is a victim of child abuse or neglect, you must act. In deciding whether or not to report an incident or situation of suspected abuse or neglect, it is not required that you have proof that abuse or neglect has occurred.

First, immediately report the information to: The University of Alabama in Huntsville Police Department at 256.824.6596.

In addition to making an oral report, you must also complete a Child Abuse or Neglect Report Form and deliver the same to the UAH Police and Director of Compliance.

Do not directly question or solicit information from the child or from the person suspected of improper behavior. That is not your role; the role of investigation lies with University, city, county, and state officials.
