Suspected Child Abuse Report - Form SS 8572 (SCAR)

 

SUGGESTED STEPS TO TAKE WHEN YOU SUSPECT CHILD ABUSE

  1. Obtain and prepare a form SS 8572 , “Suspected Child Abuse Report” (SCAR). This will assist you greatly when making the call to DCFS or Local Law Enforcement.
  2. Make a telephone report of the suspected child abuse immediately, or as soon as practically possible, to an appropriate child protective agency. Either the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) or the local law enforcement department serving the school.  LA School Police is NOT a child protective agency.
  3. Document the name, title, & badge number of the person you speak with. Be sure to get a report number at the end of your call.
  4. Before ending the call, ask the agent that you speak with if this report requires you to wait for Law Enforcement to respond, if you can conduct a concurrent investigation, or if you should handle the situation administratively.
  5. Complete an iSTAR indicating all pertinent information in the summary and action taken sections.
  6. Send a copy of the written SCAR to the agency called within 36 hours of receiving the information.

 

You may clarify to determine whether reportable abuse has occurred:

  • Tell me about your drawing.
  • Tell me about these bruises.
  • Tell me what happened.
