SPD displays pinwheels to honor victims of child abuse
SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - The Month of April is recognized as National Child Abuse Awareness Month.
To honor victims of child abuse, the Shreveport Police Department placed blue pinwheels on the front lawn to serve as a symbol of support.
It’s all part of the Pinwheels for Prevention campaign. Local police agencies, government officials, community outreach groups, and citizens participated in the event on Monday, April 10.
“You know, raising awareness about child abuse is something that takes every member of our community. We are proud to partner with the Shreveport Police Department, the Caddo Sheriff’s Department, and so many child organizations in the community. Child abuse is a huge problem all across the United States, so any opportunity we have to come together and raise awareness and just celebrate childhood as it should be, it’s important for every one of us to play a role,” said Jessica Milan Miller, CEO of the Gingerbread House Children’s Advocacy Center.
