Study: Child abuse, neglect up in Colorado

DENVER — The rate of child abuse and neglect in Colorado is on the rise, in sharp contrast to the rest of the nation, which has seen a decrease over the last several years. That troubling conclusion comes in a new report from the Kempe Center for Child Abuse and Prevention, based in Denver. The study has experts in this field asking some tough questions like:

  • Has too much money been cut from prevention programs?
  • Are people who are suffering economically taking it out on their kids?
  • Are agencies at fault for not doing enough to identify, intervene and help families at high risk?
  • Why is the number of child abuse and neglect cases increasing in Colorado, while the rest of the nation is experiencing a decrease?



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.
