When making the call, be ready to give the name, address, and contact information of the person you suspect is abused or neglected, and details about why you are concerned. You may be asked a series of questions to gain more insight into the nature of the situation.
You will be asked for your name, address, telephone number, etc., but most states will take the report even if you do not identify yourself.
The professionals receiving your report are prohibited from releasing your information as reporter. They may not disclose your identity to the alleged abuser or victim.
