Subject:RE: training and reporting protocols on college campuses

Deborah, I think the impact of reports from university staff is going to be difficult to track because we currently do not have reporter codes that distinguish between grade school, high school and university ( or trade school) staff. I did address your question to our Centralized Intake manager and thus far, there does not appear to be any trend of reporting by university staff since the Executive Order in November. I did try to compare intake for the two months available since November, to intake for last year. There is a substantial increase over the equivalent months in the previous year. However, it is difficult to determine whether the increased reporting is due to the media coverage of child maltreatment @ Syracuse and Penn State or due to the implementation of Centralized Intake. We implemented Centralized Intake in Louisiana in July of 2011. There have been significant increases in intake for each month since July.
