A total of 65,000 children were abused or neglected in New York State in 2014. That’s enough children to fill Madison Square Garden more than three times.
Law enforcement across New York State knows that we can prevent these crimes against children. They released a report highlighting a key strategy to decrease future crime in advance of the New York State Sheriffs’ Association Summer Training Conference in Saratoga Springs this week.
The organization, which has about 250 members statewide—sheriffs, police chiefs, district attorneys, and crime survivors—released Home Visiting in New York: A Critical Crime Prevention Strategy.
