HB17-1185 - Reports Of Suspected Child Abuse Or Neglect

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning reports of suspected child abuse or neglect.

Under current law, certain identified persons are mandated to report if they know or suspect that a child has been subject to abuse or neglect (mandatory reporters). If a mandatory reporter continues to be involved with a child who was the subject of the report, he or she is entitled to access to records and reports of the abuse or neglect. The bill adds to the list of mandatory reporters officials and employees of county departments of health, human services, or social services.

Current law requires the county department of human or social services to report certain information to a mandatory reporter within 30 days after the filing of a report. The bill extends the period to 60 days.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
