  • What to Do If You Suspect Abuse Against a Child
    Kentucky law requires that any person who suspects that a minor (under 18) is the victim of abuse or neglect must immediately contact a local law enforcement agency or other agency authorized by statute (KRS 620.030). Both physical and sexual abuse must be reported. You do not have to be certain of the abuse; your reasonable suspicion is enough to require a report.

    Local law enforcement includes Louisville Metro Police Department at (502) 574-7111 or the Kentucky Child/Adult Protective Services Reporting System at (877) 597-2331. You may call LMPD Crimes Against Children division directly at (502) 574-2465.

    Southern’s policy found in the Student Handbook and the Employee Handbook requires those who suspect child abuse to report directly to LMPD or KCPS. Reporting to Campus Police is not sufficient under this policy. Louisville Metro Police may later coordinate with Campus Police for criminal investigations. Failure to report suspected abuse directly to LMPD or KCPS may result in criminal charges and/or disciplinary action.

    After the initial report to LMPD, you must also contact the appropriate office so that they can take the appropriate action.

    If the suspected abuser is a student, contact the office of the Dean of Students.
    Southern Seminary: (502) 897-4220, Honeycutt 230. Boyce College: (502) 897-4295, Williams 110.

    If the suspected abuser is a faculty member, contact the office of the Provost: (502) 897-4099, Norton 147.

    If the suspected abuser is a staff member, contact Human Resources: (502) 897-4721, Carver 204.
