None Getting secondary particle number

Please, where can I obtain the number of secondaries generated by the primary particle? I have slices as sensitive detectors where I register the energy deposit by a proton beam traversing the target. Also I count these energy depositions by the primary proton as well as each secondary particle, by I know that various energy depositions could come from the same particle. So, my question is if I can count the number of secondary particles (for example, alphas) here in my sensitive detector class, and how?

Could it be done, for example, in:

G4bool myTargetSD::ProcessHits(G4Step* aStep, G4TouchableHistory*) ?

Thank you in advance,
