What is a Connecticut DCF mandated reporter?

A mandated reporter is someone designated by Connecticut statute who must report suspected abuse or neglect or else they themselves will be subject to criminal penalties. Connecticut doctors, nurses, teachers, and police officers are some examples of mandated reporters. They are under penalty of law if they do not report, so oftentimes they will make a report even if there is little to no evidence to support it.
