Virginia Department of Social Services’ (VDSS) Division of Family Services has announced the release of a new Mandated Reporter Portal
, which provides a secure, fast, and convenient way for Mandated Reporters in Virginia to submit reports of suspected child abuse and neglect. Watch a brief YouTube video
overview of the new portal.
Benefits of using the Mandated Reporter Portal include:
- Reduced wait time for Mandated Reporters making a report; online offers a quicker, user-friendly option to file a report.
- Mandated Reporters create a secure account, which will minimize the amount of time needed in making subsequent reports.
- Information entered directly by the Mandated Reporter may be more accurate.
- Data from the mandated reporter portal "transmits" the information to VDSS Hotline staff.
