In our society, We has been making steady efforts to cope with child abuse. However, not only child abuse cases but also deaths due to child abuse continue to increase. As a result, a more systematic and reinforced policy on child abuse is being requested across society.
Regarding child abuse, local governments protect victims and judicial police officers investigate abusers. Public officials dealing exclusively with child abuse of local governments do not have the authority to forcefully investigate, and judicial police officers conduct investigations to punish the perpetrator. Therefore, in order to respond more effectively to child abuse, it is possible to seek ways to grant special judicial police rights to public officials dealing exclusively with child abuse. Prior to this, it is necessary to establish an active cooperative system with the abuse prevention police officers.
Children are now subject to adult protection. Nevertheless, he is a person who should be respected by the state and society. And we must not forget that he is the leading figure in our society in the near future. Therefore, all policies on children should be centered on children. And the interests of children should be considered first. Therefore, policies for children should be established and implemented comprehensively from a long-term perspective. Furthermore, studies should continue to support these policies.
