Child Abuse

Child abuse does not discriminate. It spans all racial, gender, socio-economic and demographic boundaries. While it may be more likely to be reported and thus reflected in greater numbers of cases involving lower income families, it is by no means a problem limited to members of one economic or racial group.


Child Sexual Abuse

Child sexual abuse has been at the center of unprecedented public attention during the last decade. All fifty states and the District of Columbia have enacted statutes identifying child sexual abuse as criminal behavior. This crime encompasses different types of sexual activity. Perpetrators of child sexual abuse come from different age groups, genders, races and backgrounds.


Missing Children

Missing children includes two categories: children who have been taken, and those who have left. Increasing legislative efforts, specialized training for criminal justice professionals, along with the establishment of non-profit organizations, reflects the country's profound concern about the issue of missing children.
