Increase in Maltreatment of Children

In 2011, almost 66,000 cases of child abuse were reported to the AMK Monitoring office. On the basis of this, 19,254 investigations were carried out. Both the number of abuses reported and the investigations increased by 6% over previous years. In 8 out of 10 cases, the investigations carried out showed that there was indeed child abuse discovered. This was reported in the annual report of the youth care organization Jeugdzorg Nederland. The organization states that the increase could also be due to better reporting.
