Reform WV Child Protection Services Reporting Laws
- WV Legislature
- United States of America
Although there is a law in WV now making it possible to prosecute those making numerous false reports to Child Protective Services (CPS), they are able to escape prosecution by saying “I want to remain anonymous.” Anyone making a report of abuse or neglect to CPS should have to give their name and address. Their information should be protected only if the report is true.
Those making false reports are inflicting mental abuse upon children who otherwise are not being abused or neglected.
We, the undersigned, call on the WV Legislature to reform the law regarding false reports to Child Protective Services.
Please don't allow those making false reports to hide behind the veil of anonymity.
