Child abuse experts gather at conference
By Associated Press

State officials are hosting a two-day conference for police, educators, attorneys and others on Delaware's child protection system.

The conference that begins Wednesday in Dover is aimed at improving how Delaware professionals work together to respond to child abuse and neglect cases from both a civil and criminal perspective. Organizers also plan to discuss prevention efforts to reduce child abuse.

Officials say the conference themes are based on the work of Delaware's Child Death, Near Death and Stillbirth Commission. They are also based on reviews prompted by the case of former pediatrician Earl Bradley, who is serving life in prison for sexually molesting scores of young patients over several years.
