‘Kids on the Lawn’ at Police HQ Provide Perspective during Child Abuse Prevention Month
April is Child Abuse Prevention Month. In recognition of that, this display, created by a local Eagle Scout, is being featured on the lawn of Franklin Police Headquarters. The 28 ‘kids on the lawn’ represent 280 abused Williamson County kids served by the Davis House Child Advocacy Center last year. The display provides a visual representation of what so many of our community’s children and families face. Partnering with police to help young victims and their families through unthinkable situations is why the Davis House exists.
April was first declared Child Abuse Prevention Month by a presidential proclamation in 1983. Since then, April has been a time to acknowledge the importance of communities working together to prevent child abuse. Child abuse and neglect affects more than three million U.S. children every year.
A candlelight gathering honoring the recovery of abused children
will be held by the agencies that partner to protect them,
later this month at Franklin Police Headquarters.
