Sheriff Joe Sedinger, Lt. Steve Adams and Lt. Steve Campbell attended the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for Child Protect on April 24, 2017. They have a great kid friendly office. Sheriff Sedinger and Circuit Clerk Deb Hill had fun with the kinetic sand box at the facility.
Child Protect opened a satellite office in Prattville. The main office is located in Montgomery. The Sheriff's Office works with Child Protect anytime there is a child involved in a form of abuse. The Child Protect Children's Advocacy Center offers a non-threatening environment where a multidisciplinary team works together to minimize any further trauma during the justice and restoration process. Having an office in Prattville helps lesson the impact on the children and families. Child Protect also offers counseling to help the child recover from the abuse.
