Law Enforcement

The Law Enforcement Training Module is designed to address the specific issues and concerns of Law Enforcement professionals with regard to mandated reporting requirements.

Followed by the general training module, the Law Enforcement module is a two hour training that includes three sections. Each section will include practice test questions or vignettes.

At the conclusion of the training you will take a final exam which will test the information that you have learned during the training. Upon scoring an 80% or higher you will be able to fill out and print your Certificate of Completion. 

You Will Learn
  • What to look for when evaluating concerns of child abuse or neglect
  • How to talk to children about suspected abuse
  • Identifying signs and signals that trigger concerns of child safety
  • How to make a report
  • What happens after a report is filed
  • Special situations related to child abuse reporting for law enforcement

The Law Enforcement course may take you up to 7 hours to complete. You will receive a certificate for your records upon completion of the training.

Please Note

We have recently made changes to our website. The general training for mandated reporters is now a required prerequisite for all of the profession-specific trainings.

Altogether, the general training and the profession-specific trainings meet the training requirements of the California Child Abuse and Neglect Reporting Act (CANRA), Education Code for school personnel, and Health and Safety Code for licensed child care providers.
