Consideration of Archuleta County/Hotline County Connection Center MOU
In 2015, the state of Colorado activated the Colorado Child Abuse and Neglect Hotline (“Hotline”) in order to provide a one, easy-to-remember toll-free phone number for individuals to use statewide to report suspected child abuse and neglect. The hotline serves as a direct, immediate and efficient route to the counties which are responsible for accepting and responding to child abuse and neglect inquiries and reports. This Memorandum of Understanding (“MOU”) is developed in partnership between Hotline County Connection Center (Prowers County) and Archuleta County, with confirmation by the State of Colorado (“State”), for Prowers County to manage and administer calls to the Hotline. Cost associated with this agreement is based on a projected number of reports for 2018 in the amount of $2,882.00. The cost of this service has been considered and approved in the 2018 DHS budget.
