The campaign has taken place every April since 1983 and is dedicated to raising awareness and preventing child abuse. District Attorney Scott Slatton and the 25th Judicial District Attorney’s office are participating in Child Abuse Prevention month by implementing Pinwheels for Prevention. The courthouse lawns in Marion and Winston counties will be decorated with blue pinwheels and the 25th Judicial District Attorney’s Office is encouraging residents to participate in the campaign by wearing blue every Friday in the month of April.
