Task force shares report on preventing child sexual abuse

LANSING, MI AP) – A task force organized under the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services has made recommendations to protect children from sexual abuse.

A report was sent Wednesday to Gov. Rick Snyder.

Department of Health and Human Services Director Nick Lyon says he looks forward to working with Snyder to review the recommendations and take action.

The report was written by the Task Force on Prevention of Sexual Abuse of Children. The group was created through Erin’s Law, legislation Snyder signed in 2013 named after child abuse survivor Erin Merryn.

Members of the task force included representatives from the Health and Human Services department, the attorney general’s office, law enforcement, prosecutors’ offices, schools, courts, children’s advocacy groups and other public and private organizations.
