CALICO achieves justice and healing for abused children.  

CALICO is the Child Abuse, Listening, Interviewing, and Coordination center. 


We achieve justice by bringing together law enforcement officers, child welfare workers, prosecutors, and other professionals to investigate abuse allegations and elicit testimony from children. We use a nationally proven method designed to attain thorough and accurate information while protecting the emotional needs of the victim.  

We promote healing for victims by coordinating the first and most crucial stages of recovery.  Our skilled clinicians offer guidance, resources and support to help the entire family along the path to physical and mental health and well-being.

Dublin Police Services appreciate all that the CALICO team members do for us and our victims.  Unfortunately, we interact as partners when our victims, often young children, have experienced unimaginable physical and emotional trauma.  Simply put, we at Dublin Police Services could not complete our mission to protect and serve all members of our community, often the very young and vulnerable, without the professional, competent, and caring support of CALICO.
