Child Abuse Rates Rising

Posted by Sandra On November - 23 - 2012
Freeport, Ill. —Reports of child abuse and neglect are on the rise in downstate Illinois and Stephenson County’s rate was roughly 33 percent above the state average last fiscal year, according to the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS). A new report from DCFS shows that there has been a 5.4 percent increase in abuse/neglect cases across downstate Illinois, which includes everywhere in the state except Cook County. This comes from comparing fiscal year 2012 — which ran from July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2012 — to the previous year, said Dave Clarkin, a spokesman for DCFS. More recent statistics indicate that this is a continuing trend. The Illinois Child Abuse Hotline received 25,348 reports of suspected abuse or neglect involving downstate children from July through October of this year, compared to 24,053 children during the same period last year, states a DCFS news release.
