Reporting Process

Information about OCS intake

The Intake Unit screens reports of alleged child abuse and neglect and reports of children at risk of harm due to child abuse and neglect. The reported information is documented in a Protective Services Report (PSR) within the agency’s automated case management system, ORCA.

Intake screens the information and determines if a safety assessment is needed to determine if a child is safe in his or her home.
