Child Protection

Everyone in the community plays a role in the prevention of child abuse and neglect. If you have concerns about a child's safety and well-being, you can report your concerns to Human Services or law enforcement, any time of day or night. If it is an emergency or you are witnessing a child in a life-threatening situation, call 911 immediately.

La Plata County Human Services main number 970-382-6150

La Plata County Human Services child abuse and neglect reporting number 970-385-6438

Central Dispatch 970-387-5531

Toll-free Colorado Child Abuse and Neglect Hotline 844-264-5437 (844-CO-4-KIDS)

Calls reporting child abuse and neglect will be recorded for monitoring and quality assurance purposes.
