Be Prepared to Provide

When calling the Florida Abuse Hotline, be prepared to provide the following information:

  • Victim’s name, address or location, approximate age, race and sex;
  • Physical, mental or behavioral indications that the person is infirmed or disabled;
  • Signs or indication of harm or injury or potential harm or injury (physical description or behavioral changes);
  • Relationship of the alleged person responsible to the victim, if possible. If the relationship is unknown, a report will still be taken if other reporting criteria are met.
