DENVER (AP) -- Colorado officials are setting up a statewide telephone hotline for people to report child abuse and neglect.

According to the Denver Post, the plans are expected to be announced Wednesday. The reforms follow the deaths of 175 children under state supervision over the past six years.

The state will also build a website where the public can see how county child welfare departments are faring at protecting children.
