The Dallas Police Department's Child Abuse Squad investigates crimes against children (physical abuse, sexual abuse, and neglect) that have been committed by parents, relatives, or caregivers (teachers, babysitters, daycare, etc.). The Child Abuse Squad also investigates unexplained child deaths and child deaths caused by caregivers.
If you observe a child abuse incident, dial 9-1-1 immediately. If you suspect child abuse (but have not observed anything like suspicious bruises), you should report your suspicions to Child Protective Services (CPS) at 1-800-252-5400. DPD's Child Abuse Squad will follow-up on these reports.
State law mandates reporting child abuse! To report child abuse incidents contact local police by calling 9-1-1 or Child Protective Services at 1-800-252-5400.
