Local agencies will stress education to keep adults away from child abuse
April is Child Abuse Prevention Month and Julie Oates, Director of the Child Protection Agency says there are many events planned which acknowledge the acts of abuse in Ross County and programs to help the prevention of more acts occurring.
Among those are the pinwheel planting at the head of Yoctangee Park in Chillicothe, where a pinwheel is stuck in the ground for each child abuse case substantiated in Ross County. More than 800 abuses were reported in 2012 in Ross County alone.
