‘Pinwheels of Prevention’ planted at Slidell City Courthouse
Cases involving abused or neglected children of the East St. Tammany community are the most difficult cases over which I preside. The details are often horrific, the effect on the children is typically traumatic and the impact on all those involved in the cases can be heart-wrenching.

That’s why Slidell City Marshal Kevin Foltz and I were honored to join with the St. Tammany Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) recently in planting pinwheels in front of the Courthouse as part of a campaign to raise community awareness to the toll of child abuse.
 
The pinwheel has been adopted as the new national symbol of the National Child Abuse Awareness efforts. DCFS Foster Care Supervisors Myya Swayzer and Wendy Griffith believe the efforts will spread the word about how important it is to the community to prevent child abuse.  DCFS is partnering with the Court along with local police departments and other organizations involved in the issue to get pinwheels on display in the public. The Pinwheels of Prevention are a happy, uplifting symbol of the great childhood every child deserves and will help raise awareness of the role everyone plays in supporting families and children.
 
Child abuse and neglect is a significant problem in the local community as it is across the United States. Lamz said national statistics from 2016 show that one in four children have experienced abuse or neglect at some point in their lives.
 
To report child abuse, call the local law enforcement agency or 1-855-4LA-KIDS (1-855-452-5437) toll free 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
