Statewide Hotline in Colorado

Colorado launches statewide child abuse hotline

LAMAR, COLORADO (AP) — Colorado has launched a statewide hotline to increase reporting of suspected cases of child abuse and neglect.

The hotline is based in Lamar with 12 staff and began operating on Thursday. State officials say the Lamar center will be a hub for Colorado’s first child-abuse hotline of its kind. It’s part of Gov. John Hickenlooper’s Child Welfare Plan.

The Lamar center will direct callers to the appropriate county to handle their report. The hotline will also assist the deaf and callers who don’t speak English or Spanish.

Callers to the hotline will be assisted 24 hours a day year-round.

The hotline phone number is 1-844-264-5437
