Youth Protection Contacts

BSA has a mandatory reporting policy, which means all persons involved in Scouting shall report to local authorities any good faith suspicion or belief that any child is or has been physically or sexually abused, physically or emotionally neglected, exposed to any form of violence or threat, exposed to any form of sexual exploitation including the possession, manufacture, or distribution of child pornography, online solicitation, enticement, or showing of obscene material.

No person may abdicate this reporting responsibility to any other person.

Notify NCAC Scout Executive/CEO Craig Poland at Craig.Poland@Scouting.org or 301-214-9101 so he may take appropriate action for the safety of our Scouts, make appropriate notifications, and follow-up with investigating agencies.
