Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar held a hearing Wednesday, on efforts to improve child protection training and praised the strong training programs at the National Child Protection Training Center in Winona.
Klobuchar also discussed legislation she plans to introduce that would help improve child protection training across the country.
"As a former prosecutor, I know that child abuse is quite literally a life and death issue," Klobuchar said. "I have visited Winona State University many times and seen first-hand how the National Child Protection Training Center is leading the effort to train those on the front lines in the fight to stop child abuse. We need to ensure that all of our child protection professionals have the tools they need to help protect children from abuse, neglect, and exploitation."
The National Child Protection Training Center develops curriculums on child protection for colleges, law schools, and medical schools, and provides training to child protection professionals across the United States.
