Reporting Child Abuse - North Dakota

NORTH DAKOTA

Under North Dakota law, certain professionals (including doctors and health care professionals, mental health professionals, teachers and school officials, social workers, child care providers, foster parents, law enforcement officers, or clergy, among others) are required to report any known or suspected child abuse to the Department of Human Services (orally or in writing) if that information becomes known in their professional or official capacity. Any other person not specifically listed may report known or suspected abuse or neglect. Any oral report must be followed by a written report within forty-eight (48) hours.

Abuse is defined to include physical, mental and sexual abuse.
