Covid Cuts into Detection of Child Abuse in Bend

The pandemic is having an impact on the reporting of potential child abuse cases in Bend.  Bend Kids Center Development and Marketing Director Robin Antonson says they’ve seen a reduction in the number of reports of suspected child abuse since the schools closed because teachers can’t act as that second set of eyes to spot potential abuse.  As a result, she says they’re asking the public to be extra vigilant this holiday season.  If you suspect a child is being abused, she says you can report it by calling Kids Center or by going to their website at “kids-center-dot-org.”
