Law enforcement training on child abuse set

Dumaguete City (10 November) -- A group of non-government agencies is scheduled to train law enforcers in Negros Oriental on handling child abuse cases on November 16 at 9:30AM at the Provincial Hospital Administration Building function room.

The Great Physician Rehabilitation Center (GPRehab), Gender Women Against Violence and Exploitation (G-WAVE), Psychology Department of Silliman University, and Philippine National Police are sponsoring this seminar-workshop on how to prevent child sexual abuse and improve investigation of case.

Vice Dean of the College of Law of De La Salle University Atty. Rosario Olivas-Gallo, and proponent of the Keep the Children Safe Movement will facilitate the training.

According to Rolando Villamero Jr., Advocacy Coordinator of GPRehab, this activity is designed to discuss the myths and facts of child sexual abuse, how to identify an abuser, how to identify an abused child, safety plans for family, neighborhood, and school, and urgent steps to help a victim of child sexual abuse.

"As members of the society, it is our moral obligation to help prevent child abuse. Our children cannot wait. If we are not taking good care of our children, in essence, we are destroying our future," expressed Analou Suan, GPRehab Executive Director.

Expected to attend this seminar-workshop are the PNP Negros Oriental Personnel, parents, teachers, church leaders, non-government organizations working for children, barangay leaders, lawyers, law students, and law enforcers.

Villamero said aside from facilitating the seminar-workshop on child abuse, Atty. Olivas-Gallo will also do radio guestings to further spread awareness about child sexual abuse in the community. (PIA/JCT) [top]
