Safe Surrender

 

The Safely Surrendered Baby Law responds to the increasing number of newborn infant deaths due to abandonment in unsafe locations. First created in January 2001, the Safely Surrendered Baby Law was signed permanently into state law in January 2006. The law's intent is to save lives of newborn infants at risk of abandonment by encouraging parents or persons with lawful custody to safely surrender the infant within 72 hours of birth, with no questions asked.

From January 1, 2001, to March 31, 2014, 621 newborns have been surrendered in California, and as of March 31, 2014, 15 newborns have been surrendered in 2014. The Department is currently working to improve data gathering and statistics for abandoned infants in order monitor the effectiveness of the Safely Surrendered Baby Law in preventing infant abandonment.

 

THERE IS AN OPTION. DON'T ABANDON YOUR BABY.

Safe surrender sites are hospitals or other locations, typically fire stations, that are approved by the board of supervisors or fire agency in each county.
Safe surrender sites are required to display the blue and white logo.
