New York’s Child Protective Services Act, passed in 1973, established:
* Mandatory reporting by specific professionals of suspected child abuse or maltreatment.
* Creation of a central registry (the SCR) open 24 hours per day, 7 days a week to receive the reports, operated by the New York State Office for Children and Family Services (OCFS).
* Creation of local Child Protective Services (CPS) to receive and investigate reports from the central registry (NYSOCFS, 2011).
Today the laws that guide New York CPS services are Article 6, Title 6 of the Social Services Law and Article 10 of the Family Court Act (NYSOCFS, 2011).
