Authorities check in on CYFD referrals during ‘Operation Child Safe’


Thursday night, officers and deputies were visiting homes referred to them by CYFD. 

“Operation Safe Child” happens once a month. It’s when Bernalillo County Sheriff’s deputies and APD officers check in on children who have been abused or neglected. 

Thursday, investigators were focusing on families whose kids have been missing school or have other academic problems. 

“If we discover something or we think that we might be of help in some way, then we turn around and try to get them connected to local resources,” Sgt. Amy Dudewicz. 

Families who needed it were given donations collected during coat and blanket drives.
