Event held to raise awareness of child abuse and neglect in Indiana


There was a call to action across Indiana Tuesday.  The Department of Child Services wants more people to be aware of child abuse in the state. 

They held an event called "Pinwheels for Prevention."  They hope to remind you that if you see or suspect child abuse it is your obligation to report it to the authorities.

"What we're doing is trying to pull in the community for public awareness of child abuse and neglect and get education and info out," says Linda Cioch with the St. Joe County Department of Child Services.
