Staff as Mandatory Reporters
Within its scope of duties, the OYA is committed to protecting the public and, as such, emphasizes public safety and supports the concerns of crime victims. Staff are designated and required, by statute, to be mandatory reporters of instances of suspected child abuse, occurring on the job and in their private lives.
In conjunction with this responsibility, the OYA recognizes that staff carry an additional responsibility to ensure the safety of offenders in its custody.  Whenever abuse is suspected involving an offender under the age of 18, staff will meet the mandatory child abuse reporting requirements. Staff will immediately respond to the safety issues of the offender involved in the situation.
OYA Staff are required to attend annual trainings on Mandatory Reporting.
