New Efforts To Keep Kids Safe

The city of Jacksonville has a new way to protect your kids and they're the first in our state to do it this way.

The police department has partnered with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Now, the police call center for Jacksonville Police is the first in our state to be a call center partner-- specially trained to deal with cases of missing or abused children.

Both the chief of police and a local child abuse interview expert say in situations where time is so valuable-- this certification and training is a big help.

To give you an idea of how many kids this could help: In the city of Jacksonville, five percent of the population is five-years old or younger.
