Reporting it to those in authority is all you can do. It also depends on the evidence you have of the abuse. I found in the past that if you call them as an emergency right when it is happening (for instance you are hearing a lot of fighting, children crying, being beaten, etc.) then they respond right away.

An 11-year-old girl was raped by her father and is now pregnant as a result.
This was revealed on Tuesday night by Margaret Sampson-Browne, head of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service Victim and Witness Support Unit.
Sampson-Browne also said child abuse, including s-xual assault, in the Chaguanas area was on the rise, with the number of reports made this year already surpassing last year's count. Ref. Source 6
Comments: I know of a child in the P.O.S area that has been abused since he could talk. His parents call him all kind of disturbing names.Reports were made to the police station as well as childline and child abuse services. Unfortunately his cries of "Oh Gawd daddy do beat meh na" Goes unheard. What else can I do?
On TV6 News there was a report that an abusive couple in Cascade locked their child in a kennel for what duration I don't know but they have been brought before the law already and denied bail.
TV6 News reported a case where a 6 year old girl was left in a HDC POS apartment building alone while the parent went out get bread. Neighbors were alerted to the sound of the little girl's screams as the apartment was engulfed with fire. No one was able to rescue her. The little girl's body was found in a corner of a room. If they went to get bread why not take the little girl?
Because they don't want to freaking bother JB, that's why. I'm sorry, I'm sick of reading stories like this. Just reading the previous comment like the one Crystiff posted makes me so vex I'm unable to control myself.
