Norwegian term or phrase:Barnvernevakten
In a child welfare case where children are at risk due to conflict between separated parents.
Politiet kontaktet Barnevakten xx.xx.xx. Mor ønsker bistand fra politiet...
I've seen it spelt BarneVakten on Google, and assume this document refers to the same organisation.
If not for the capitalization of Barnevakten it seems that the police contacted the baby sitter. However, due to the capitalization it seems to refer to an emergency unit of the child welfare services like William noted below.
