WINONA, Minnesota (WXOW) - U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar stopped by the Winona State campus Monday morning.
She was there to tour the National Child Protection Training Center. The center provides an educational curriculum to current and future child protection professionals so that they will be able to recognize and report child abuse.
Senator Klobuchar has been a long time advocate for the center and she was very impressed with the size of the center and how it provides realistic environments for students to learn from.
"They have recreated an entire mock crime scene in a house including the outside of the house and the inside of the house with a really complicated fact story so that students can learn what went wrong and how they can try to do a better job of investigating things," says Klobuchar. "I thought is was an amazing hands-on experience."
The center also includes five moot court rooms and four forensic interview rooms to help simulate child abuse investigations.
