OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma State Department of Health Office of Child Abuse Prevention is offering specialty license tags to raise money to help prevent child abuse in the state.

Applications for the specialty tag called “Start Right” are available at local tag agencies. The specialty license tag costs $35. Of every tag purchased, $20 of the proceeds will go into the child abuse prevention fund to support prevention programs across the state.

State officials say that last year, there were more than 11,400 confirmations of child abuse and/or neglect in Oklahoma.

The agency also is seeking volunteers and active participants for year-round to help plan ways to reach local communities with information about positive parenting and child abuse prevention programs in their area.
