In this country we (theoretically) are guilty until proven innocent, so the parents won't be arrested or charged unless there is evidence to suggest beyond a reasonable doubt that they were wrong, but if there is sufficient evidence to suggest that there may be abuse or excessively poor living conditions then protecting the victims is completely reasonable. If there is a report of domestic abuse for example and the victim confirms it via her testimony then that's not enough to charge the potential perpetrator but it's certainly more than enough for the police to escort the victim to safety. See the difference?
