Volunteers of public or private organization whose duties require direct contact with and supervision of children are not mandated reporters but are encouraged to obtain training in the identification and reporting of child abuse or neglect and are encouraged to report known or suspected instances of child abuse or neglect.
However, volunteers who have regular contact with children and are acting as representatives for the Episcopal Diocese of Northern California and are required to report per diocesan policy. In such a case, a report may made anonymously.
Child protective agencies are required to keep a mandated reporter’s name confidential, unless a court orders the information disclosed.
