NWACC Prepares for New Child Protection Training Center
A national child protection center is getting a new home at Northwest Arkansas Community College.
Officials broke ground Friday (March 15) on the new facility, part of a $3 Million renovation of a former oncology building on campus. The center is designed to teach students how to investigate and detect child abuse.
Director Stephanie Smith says the center will train professionals from this region and beyond.
“This center sill serve the 16 southern states plus the District of Columbia , so when we do our training anyone in the country would be welcome to come,” she said.
Once completed, the center will feature medical exam rooms, a practice courtroom and interactive video equipment.
