Supervisors sign proclamation for child abuse prevention month

New Hampton, Iowa – April is child abuse prevention month and to help spread awareness for the cause, Chickasaw County Supervisors signed a proclamation.

Kathy Babcock with the county’s public health department said cases being prosecuted are growing.


She added the numbers were from 2017 as the 2018 statistics haven’t been released.

While the rising numbers are alarming, there have been more people reporting cases.


The Charles City Council signed a proclamation at Monday night’s city council meeting.
