Understanding the Risks

Funding from the Child Victim's Trust Fund has allowed Prevent Child Abuse Kentucky to develop a series of media messages airing on television, radio and appearing in the print media. We have worked alongside partners and key stakeholders to develop these messages. Watch our social media and please share and interact with us to help spread the word about how we can prevent the abuse and neglect of Kentucky's children. Please use these in your work and throughout your community. If you have questions, or would like to share with us how you are using these resources, email

 Public Service Announcements for Television

"Anywhere, Anytime"

In both 30 second and 60 second formats, these PSAs note we as adults protect our children from many things as they are growing up. Just as we protect them from cuts and scrapes from falling off their bike, or teach them to not touch the hot stove, we must remember to keep them safe from child sexual abuse. Child sexual abuse can happen to any child, anywhere, at any time, and occurs almost always by someone we know.

"Keep Kids Safe"

In both 30 second and 60 second formats, these PSAs note we as adults protect our kids from many things as they grow up. Just as we protect children from sunburns, from drowning, from getting hurt on a bike, to driving a car safely, and looking both ways when crossing the street, we must take precaution to keep them safe from child sexual abuse. It is our responsibility. Child sexual abuse can happen to any child, anywhere, at any time, and occurs almost always by someone we know.
