In 2009, the Pima County Attorney's Office, Casa de los Niños
and the Dean of Students Office came together to create an
awareness campaign on the University of Arizona's campus. The
campaign's purpose is to provide information concerning the Tucson
Safe Baby Program, a program that allows the anonymous transfer of
a newborn baby at any local hospital, clinic or fire department station.
The program allows for the anonymous transfer of a newborn as long as the baby:
There will be no prosecution for abandonment if these conditions are met.
The program's message is:
Don't Panic, there is an option. You are not alone!
