LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) – The Amateur Athletic Union says two task forces established to independently review child safety protocols, policies and procedures will make their recommendations by February.

The AAU announced the measures Wednesday at its headquarters near Orlando, Fla. as a child sex abuse investigation dating back 30 years and centered on ex-president Robert "Bobby" Dodd progresses in Tennessee.

AAU president Louis Stout says these are the first allegations of this nature AAU has ever received and that the goal of the task forces is to help "redefine trust".

Stout says the task forces, one led by retired law enforcement personnel and the other by a head of a child abuse foundation, will have full access to the organization's documentation and may interview staff and volunteers.
