Abuse hotline calls down 27% as experts worry kids are suffering in silence

SAN ANTONIO – New numbers just released by the state show reports of abuse and neglect are way down, but law enforcement warns the data is deceptive.

The Texas Abuse Hotline received 23,103 calls in April concerning both children and adults. That’s down about 27% from April 2019 when the hotline received 31,518 calls.

The Bexar County Sheriff warns we won’t have a true picture of abuse and neglect until this health crisis is over.https://foxsanantonio.com/news/local/abuse-hotline-calls-down-27-as-experts-worry-kids-are-suffering-in-silence-05-08-2020
