Dakota County Child Protection offers a free workshop to residents whose job requires them to report suspected child abuse and neglect to social services or law enforcement. Childcare professionals, social workers, teachers, physicians and other professionals that work with children and families are mandated reporters under Minnesota law. See the Mandated Reporter Workshop flyer.
Date: Thursday, Nov. 29, 2018
Time: 1:30-4 p.m. or 6:30–9 p.m.
Where: Rosemount Community Center, 13885 South Robert Trail, Rosemount, MN 55068
Although mandated reporters are not required to attend this training, this training may teach how to help the children you are in contact with and what is legally required of you. Both sessions are identical, so residents interested should only attend one session.
The training will cover:
- Legal requirements of a mandated reporter
- Definitions of neglect and abuse
- Process of making child protection reports
- Response of child protection
- Court process after a report is received
Register: You can register for this free event online. Register by Nov. 16.
