All the public safety workers I have talked to has never heard of a 51A report being called in by phone.
The procedure they have been trained on is to file the report and fax it.
Did DCF change the rules and never notified public safety agencies?
Or has this always been a rule but a fax was considered the normal acceptable method until now since DCF is on the hot seat and trying to protect themselves?

All mandated reporters know that a phone call is the first step prior to written notice.
We know cops aren't that bright but come on, this is pretty basic stuff.

Here you go Resident, the law is explained in this article. Please pass along to your friends in public safety. Sounds like they could use a refresher.
As any cop will tell you, ignorance of the law is no excuse. Grafton police messed up too.
