Professional Training Events
KCCAC sponsors and conducts professional training sessions for multidisciplinary professionals on topics related to child abuse investigation, prosecution, treatment and prevention. These training efforts are designed to increase skills and knowledge in order to enhance the effectiveness of investigations, case management, medical and mental health treatment, which ultimately improve safety for child victims and communities.

State Data Collection
KCCAC collects statistical data from all CACs in Kansas regarding victim and offender demographics, service delivery data and program performance outcomes. Through data collection and analysis, KCCAC seeks to learn more about who CACs are serving, how children are being victimized, how abused children and their families receive helping services and what benefit CACs have to their program consumers.
