Nevada Child Protection and Safety: Shocking Truth about Laws to Protect Our Children


All abuse is intolerable, and it is especially heartbreaking when a child is victimized. Too often we see news stories of abuse, neglect, molestation, sexual abuse, sex trafficking, and sexual exploitation of kids by adults who were entrusted with their care. This has been happening both on the local and national levels, as amplified by high-profile cases like the U. S. Youth Soccer Association lawsuit.

Sexual Abuse Cases Involving Children On Rise: Can Background Checks Help?


Last month, the U.S. Youth Soccer Association (along with its California affiliate) settled a lawsuit to the tune of $8.2 million dollars for failing to run background checks on their volunteer coaches—a decision that led to the molestation of a 13-year-old girl by a coach.

An increased community presence in schools can be very beneficial for both students and staff, but it also brings an added element of potential danger.
