The GLCAC is comprised of professionals from DCYF, law enforcement, prosecution, victim advocacy, medical, mental health, education, and other disciplines as appropriate. They are committed to coordinated investigations and effective utilization of existing community resources to help the community identify and confront child abuse so as to reduce trauma and promote healing of victims and their supportive care givers and hold offenders accountable.
