Victims of Child TITLE II–VICTIMS OF CHILD ABUSE ACT
SEC. 201. SHORT TITLE.
This title may be cited as the “Victims of Child Abuse Act of 1990”.
Subtitle A-Improving Investigation and
Prosecution of Child Abuse Cases
42 USC 13001.
SEC. 211. FINDINGS.
(1) over 2,000,000 reports of suspected child abuse and neglect are made each year, and drug abuse is associated with a significant portion of these;
(2) the investigation and prosecution of child abuse cases is extremely complex, involving numerous agencies and dozens of personnel;
(3) in such cases, too often the system does not pay sufficient attention to the needs and welfare of the child victim, aggravating the trauma that the child victim has already experienced;
(4) multidisciplinary child abuse investigation and prosecution programs have been developed that increase the reporting of child abuse cases, reduce the trauma to the child victim, and increase the successful prosecution of child abuse offenders; and
(5) such programs have proven effective, and with targeted Federal assistance, could be duplicated in many jurisdictions throughout the country.
