Children are brought to CAST only after a report of suspected maltreatment has been made to a child protective agency. In Orange County, both the Department of Children and Family Services within the Orange County Social Services Agency and law enforcement agencies/police departments are considered child protective agencies.
Orange County Child Protective Services 714-940-1000 or 800-207-4464 (24-hour hotline, 7 days a week). If you would like to discuss or report child abuse.
To report a crime and/or when a child needs immediate protection, call the law enforcement jurisdiction in which the crime has occurred. A local law enforcement agency should be called if the appropriate law enforcement jurisdiction cannot respond in a timely manner.
Only a child protective agency can make arrangements for children to be brought to the Child Abuse Services Team.
