MADISON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

The National Children's Advocacy Center re-signed it's inter-agency agreement with its partner agencies Tuesday.

Those agencies include the Huntsville and Madison Police Departments, Madison County Sheriff's Office, Madison County Department of Human Services, Madison County District Attorney's Office, and Crisis Services of North Alabama.

The agencies work as a team to assure children in our area receive the best response to child abuse, while aiming to hold those responsible accountable.

"Whether it's DHR, Crisis Services of North Alabama, or local law enforcement, we are in this together," said Chris Newlin of NCAC. "This is a collaborative effort to help protect our children."

The Madison County multi-disciplinary inter-agency agreement was created in 1985.

The agencies update the agreement every year so that it truly reflects the work being done and to plan for the future.
