Subject:RE: child-on-child molestation

In Virginia, report is taken, caller is advised to contact local law enforcement and CPS sends to local law enforcement - if the perpetrator is not a caretaker. How that takes place has difference depending upon the locality. In our county, we send a written referral with the information to the law enforcement unit that works with us on other cases that belong to both agencies i.e. sexual abuse. In Virginia, the statistics would have to come from law enforcement and CPS combined because some child on child belongs to CPS and law enforcement while non-caretaker child on child belongs only to law enforcement. They belong to both if the perpetrator is for example the fifteen year old baby sitter.=20 Alice F.

How are reports of child-on-child molestation handled in your jurisdiction? Is there a protocol for their investigation or are they screened out? Also, does anyone know of statistics on the rate or occurrence of child-on-child reports? Thanks!
