Child Abuse and Neglect Reporting

Nebraska statutes require any person to report child abuse and neglect, including sexual assault, to law enforcement or the Department of Health and Human Services. Law enforcement is required to notify DHHS on incidents reported to them. University employees and students are encouraged to notify the UNL Police Department at 402-472-2222 immediately when these situations are suspected. You should contact the Department Chair immediately if you suspect child abuse or neglect.
