ODESSA, TX (KWES) - Odessa Police say they've been seeing more and more cases of abandoned children, and they're working to put a stop to it.
"We're constantly making arrest when it comes to endangering a child or abandoning a child. It's happening way to often and shouldn't be happening at all, but shouldn't be happening at all," said Steve LeSueur with the Odessa Police Department.
Cases like this surfacing every week.
"We respond to a lot more of these calls than people realize. We constantly respond to loss child calls, found child calls, check welfare, whatever the call is," said LeSueur.
Odessa Police say this could have a deadly outcome and are sending the message that this needs to stop.
