Members of the office of Schuyler County Attorney Steven Getman assisted with the county’s “Pinwheels for Prevention” program to raise awareness of April 2019 as “Child Abuse Prevention Month.”
Under the campaign, officials promote preventing child abuse by distributing pinwheels and hosting educational events.
Schuyler County has set up a Pinwheels for Prevention garden outside the County Courthouse at 105 Ninth Street, in Watkins Glen.
The County Attorney’s office, which prosecutes civil cases of child abuse and neglect for the Department of Social Services, assisted county staff and Glove House employees in setting up the garden and distributing pinwheels.
The recognition of April as “Child Abuse Prevention Month” was made by the Schuyler County Legislature at its April 8 meeting.
