Wouldnt police and docs being called at the same time work slightly more effectively? The person abusing the kid is immediately arrested for assault, rather than it having to be proved they did it to begin with or that its severe enough.

I dont know how or why this is acceptablw.

Lots of people call the police. In cases where children are involved or at risk, the police involve DOCs. When DOCs has been notified first, if there is allegations of a crime, they involve the police. The hard part is often evidence
