Child abuse can include non-accidental physical injury, sexual abuse, willful cruelty, corporal punishment (physical punishment), and neglect. In addition to professionals required to report suspected abuse, community members also have an important role in protecting children. If you have information regarding suspected child abuse, please call the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services, local office or hotline at (800) 540-4000.
California's Megan's Law provides the public with certain information on the whereabouts of sex offenders so that members of our local communities may protect themselves and their children.
