CASPER, Wyo. Wednesday, Department of Family Services staff and Casper Police presented the approach.

"And what it focuses on is awareness and collaboration on bringing community partners together so that children's lives are being bettered." Said Rebecca Hoard of the Department of Family Services.

Wyoming has seen the training here and there for a few years.

"The state has brought in DEC trainers so that all of Wyoming can get it. We have several people across the state trying to bring it in and that was in August of this year."

Staff worked with professionals.

"We have some probation and some parole agents. We have some people from Casper Housing Authority we have also myself from the Police Department we have some DFS workers," said A. White of the Casper Police Department.

But they say it affects everybody.

"It's bigger than just one person or just one distinction. All of us have a role to play from our hospital staff to our school bus drivers. I mean we all work together." Explained White.

They say if you don't know much, you can always reach out to them.

White says there are different warning signs and if you think something is wrong to report it.
