Kristi McVee - Director, Child Abuse Prevention & Education Australia.

Hi Parents

My name is Kristi, I spent 10 years in the police force as a specialist child interviewer and a detective senior constable. When I retired from the force, I believed there was a better way to help. By taking a proactive approach, rather than a reactive approach, I knew i could help prevent child abuse and break the cycle of trauma that victims are so often subjected to.
The only way to stop child abuse from occurring is if we stop ignoring it, raise awareness and educate. We need to see it, hear it and get the message out in every way. 
This is why CAPE-AU was founded. To provide an educational service for parents, caregivers and guardians around child protection and abuse prevention.
