Recent allegation against a Dothan High School resource officer has caused some parents to become concerned about their children’s safety.
There are things that parents and students can do to arm themselves against sexual abuse.
Officials say it may start with a few kind words, but students need to be able to tell the difference between what appropriate and what is not.
Child Advocacy Center workers say parents have to make their children comfortable enough to come to them or another adult they feel safe with. Workers say it is imperative for victims to speak up.
If you, or someone you know needs to report a case of sexual misconduct, contact the human resources department in the county you live in.
