PADV staff and volunteers are considered mandatory child-abuse reporters under the law, and any violence or abuse of a person under the age of 18 is considered child abuse. That means if a juvenile calls and identifies herself and reveals information that leads us to suspect or to know that violence/abuse has occurred, we must report it. However, if a juvenile calls and does not reveal her identity and discusses these issues, we cannot report it because we don’t know who the person is.
