Will my name be revealed if I make a referral?
Those who report abuse or neglect are guaranteed confidentiality from the Westmoreland County Children's Bureau whether they request it or not. When cases of severe physical abuse and/or sexual abuse are reported to the agency, the agency must report these to law enforcement. Law enforcement officers are also expected to treat the referral source as confidential.
