Reporting Suspected Abuse

Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) within local communities are responsible for receiving and investigating reports of suspected child abuse and neglect. Reports are received by Children’s Administration/Child Protective Services (CPS) located in each community office and assessed to determine whether the report meets the legal definition of abuse or neglect and how dangerous the situation is.

Children's Administration offers several ways to report abuse:

Daytime - Find your local office number to report abuse or neglect in your area.  Tri-Cities DCFS Phone Number (509) 585-3000

Nights & Weekends - call 1-800-562-5624 to report abuse during the evening or on weekends.
