The Child Advocacy Center works as a multidisciplinary team with the Department of Children’s Services, law enforcement, and the District Attorney’s Office to respond to child abuse, child sexual abuse, and drug endangered children cases. Department of Children’s Services protects children. Law enforcement investigates the crime and arrests perpetrators. The District Attorney’s Office aggressively prosecutes offenders. While, the Child Advocacy Center interviews victims and helps children and families heal from the trauma of the abuse. Over the last twenty years, the Child Protective Investigative Team has worked together to investigate 16,000 child abuse cases and assisted 24,000 individuals.
