YORK – York County Sen. Kristin Phillips-Hill is reminding  residents that services are still available to protect victims of child abuse, domestic violence and other crimes against vulnerable populations during the state’s response to COVID-19. Incidents of child abuse or neglect can be reported to ChildLine 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 1-800-932-0313 and online at KeepKidsSafe.pa.gov. Phillips-Hill said, “April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month and during this unprecedented time when everyone is ordered to stay at home by the governor, it is imperative to ensure the safety of every Pennsylvanian, including children.” She also noted the Buyer Beware Act takes effect on Sunday. The law places significant penalties on individuals who traffic or solicit the services of trafficked victims in Pennsylvania. Victims of domestic violence and sexual assault can receive crisis services by calling 1-888-772-7227 or visiting pcar.org.
