GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) -- Gov. Haley is making a trip to Greenville to discuss a recent report on child abuse in South Carolina.
Her office says the Republican is joining with representatives from Greenville Health System on Monday to talk about Silent Tears.
The report came out earlier this year and was the result of a yearlong review by the National Child Protection Training Center of child sex abuse in South Carolina. The report was released in May and says coordination and training are key to successfully prosecuting child abuse cases.
The study found that most of those directly involved in handling child sexual abuse cases have no undergraduate or graduate training directly dealing with child abuse cases.
