CPS: Spike in reports of child abuse alarming

An alarming spike in child abuse or neglect reports involving children who are 5 years old or younger has led several government of Guam agencies to urge parents to take a proactive approach in protecting victims who are too young to protect themselves.

During a press conference yesterday, Lydia Tenorio, administrator of Child Protective Services, said the number of incidents involving these young victims had climbed noticeably in recent weeks.

According to figures provided by the agency, there have been about 450 reports involving victims under the age of 5 made to CPS this year, including more than 150 in the current quarter, which doesn’t end until October.



By the time you finish reading this, 15 children will have been abused; In the next five minutes, 30 more; Within the next hour, 360 more; And by tonight, close to 8,000+ children will have suffered from abuse, 5 of which will die. Child abuse has increased 134% since 1980 and is now considered a worldwide epidemic. The high jump in child abuse deaths and the shocking increase in statistics highlights the frightening lack of public knowledge.
Educate Yourself--Learn the Facts--It may Just Save a Child's Life!!
