In 1984, the local children and youth services unit of Social &
Rehabilitation Services of Kansas (SRS) and Reno County law enforcement
officers saw close to a 100% increase in confirmed reports of child

PSAP presentations in the classrooms.
Another success of the program has been the opportunity for victims
of child sexual abuse to receive counseling, thus reducing the number
of victims who become promiscuous, runaway, break laws, get involved
in drugs/alcohol or choose abusive relationships as adults.
In 2005, there were 135 sexual assault evaluations in Reno County
concerning children who were suspected of being assaulted and 58 of
those evaluations were confirmed, resulting in both victims and offenders
