Many people wore blue Wednesday to support the prevention
of child abuse and neglect, but in Findlay, they did things a little different.
There were 368 pinwheels placed in front of the Hancock
County Courthouse. That number represents the amount of open and investigated
child abuse cases in the county last year. It's only a small fraction of the
approximately 1,300 calls Hancock County Children's Services receives each year
to report child abuse.
The goal of the display is to remind people that child
abuse happens everywhere. There are signs to look for:
"A lot of times you'll see children very withdrawn, very
underweight," said Diana Hoover, of Hancock County Children's Services. "Maybe
sometimes with abuse, they'll wear clothing that's inappropriate for the
weather, like maybe it's really warm, but they have on long sleeves."
On a positive note, the amount of pinwheels has
decreased. In 2011, there were 408 cases of child abuse.
