A disturbing increase in child abuse cases across the city this past year has prompted police to investigate what’s behind the spike. Cases of severe injury — including infants with broken bones — are climbing, police say. In 2010, 24 children suffered physical assault resulting in serious injury or broken bones. “We’re researching it right now trying to figure out why,” said Calgary’s police Chief Rick Han-son. The Calgary Police Services child abuse unit investigated nearly 250 files this year. There were 180 cases of female sexual abuse, 43 males sexually abused and 24 cases of physical abuse.


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.
