Georgia law, [OCGA 19-7-5(c)(1)], designates certain professionals as mandated reporters of child abuse or neglect. If you are one of those professionals and have reasonable cause to believe that a child has been abused, you must make a report, immediately but no later than 24 hours, to your local DFCS office or law enforcement and are subject to criminal penalty for failing to do so.
