NEW Pennsylvania Child Protection Law

As you are probably aware a new law regarding Youth Protection became effective this year.  The primary impact of this law is to make every Scouting volunteer, professional, and employee a designated reporter of any suspected child abuse to Child and Youth Services or Child Line.  In addition, the Act also redefined the definition of Child Abuse.  The effect was to lower the standard of what constitutes Child Abuse.  This was done to correct what was seen as too high of a standard which resulted in a significantly lower reporting of suspected Child Abuse as a percentage of population than the national average.
