Child Protective Services

Table Of Contents:
Description:
     Child Protective Services (CPS) is responsible for the investigation of reports of suspected child abuse and maltreatment.  Coverage is provided 24 hours a day.  During non-business hours, workers are reached by the New York State Central Registry through a beeper service.  Investigations are begun within 24 hours of the receipt of a report and in most cases immediately upon receipt, depending on the nature of the report.

     Depending on the outcome of the CPS investigation children may be temporarily removed from their home if they are in danger, or left with a parent or relative while services and supervision are implemented. Cases of Child Abuse and Neglect are handled through the Family Court System.

IF YOU BELIEVE A CHILD IS BEING MALTREATED YOU MAY CALL THE CHILD ABUSE REGISTRY AT 1-800-342-3720
