Child Protection and Fatality Team

Child Protection And Fatality Team

The Cabarrus County Child Protection and Fatality Team is a group of professionals who serve children and work collectively to:

  • Examine local systems pertaining to the health, safety, and welfare of children
  • Share information about community resources for children
  • Identify service gaps areas within our community and ask for help satisfying those gaps
  • Review every fatality of a child within Cabarrus County to determine if the death was preventable and if so, what steps we can take as a community to ensure it never happens again

Ways To Help Protect Children

If you know of a child actively being abused or observe domestic violence, call 911. If you are concerned about the possibility of abuse, even if you aren’t sure, contact the Department of Human Services at 704-920-2277. If it is a weekend, holiday or after hours, call 704-920-3000.

You can make a report anonymously, but if you do provide your name and contact information, it will be kept confidential, and you may request a follow up letter informing you of whether a case was opened or closed.
