Keenan Takes Proactive Position For Child Abuse Month And Beyond

April 13, 2022

TORRANCE, Calif. – AP Keenan, an industry-leading California insurance brokerage and consulting firm for public schools, public agencies, and health care organizations, is pleased to share its proactive stance for Child Abuse Prevention (CAP) that goes beyond the month-long observation every April.

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, at least one in seven children have experienced child abuse and/or neglect in the past year and “this is likely an underestimate.” AP Keenan’s SafeSchools division has developed and dedicated a significant amount of time to create resources and programs that will not only benefit at-risk children, but change the statistics of child abuse. 

Partnered with Regional Liability Excess Fund (ReLiEF) and California School Boards Association (CSBA), AP Keenan’s CAP resource page offers a CAP Promo Kit which contains tools to help spread the word in communities and schools such as Zoom backgrounds, social media imagery and flyers. AP Keenan has also created CAP buttons to wear with the intention of bringing attention and sparking conversation around CAP. The resource page also includes a link to the microlearning series videos and abuse prevention resources that can be shared throughout communities, offices, schools and even sports teams.

Mandated Reporter Training is required in the state of California and is a free online AP Keenan course that helps report and prevent child abuse in schools. AP Keenan has facilitated over 2.4 Million course completions through their SafeSchools Mandated Reporter Training over the years. As of July 1, 2021, 313,534 have taken action in completing the reporter training for the 2022 year. Furthermore, the AP Keenan SafeSchools courses have been completed by 12.5 Million and offer an array of school safety courses. 

“I have an incredible passion and feel deeply connected to the work we do with and for our school districts,” said Leslie Delozier, Assistant JPA Manager at AP Keenan. “The resources we have created and compiled surrounding Child Abuse Prevention Month are built to be relied upon throughout the year. We are grateful for our abuse prevention partners and look forward to continuing to collectively raise awareness for this important cause.”
