New Statewide Child Abuse Hotline Replaces Old System

July 13th, 2011

The Louisiana Department of Children and Family Services has launched a new, more efficient approach to protecting children at risk of abuse and neglect. A single toll-free number, 1-855-4LA-KIDS (1-855-452-5437), replaces the twenty-five regional phone numbers used in the past to report child abuse. The new hotline is staffed by trained child welfare workers 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Benefits of the newly centralized reporting system include more consistent screening of child abuse reports while allowing local child protection workers more time in the field to better respond to the needs of Louisiana children. Read the press release for more information on Louisiana’s new child abuse hotline.
