April Designated Child Abuse Prevention Month In Hopkins County

Hopkins County Judge Robert Newsom and the County Commissioners Monday morning proclaimed April as Child Abuse Prevention Month in Hopkins County.

With more than 97 confirmed victims of child abuse and neglect were reported in Hopkins County in 2019, Newsom urges “all citizens to join in a national effort to raise awareness and help reduce child abuse and neglect in years to come.”

All are encouraged to “work together to reduce child abuse and neglect and to significantly improve the response of our community when child abuse occurs in the months and year ahead.” Doing so, the county judge declared “will give abused and neglected children in our community and around the country, a chance for a safe and positive future.”
