Blue Ribbon Tree Ceremony highlights child abuse cases

A tree in front of the Robertson County Courthouse will spend the month of April reminding people about child abuse and neglect.

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month, and representatives from Scotty’s House Child Advocacy Center, together with local law enforcement agencies, dedicated the tree to raise awareness of what has been called a serious problem in the community.

Advocates hung blue ribbons on the tree for each of the 37 confirmed cases of child abuse and neglect that occurred in Robertson County in 2016.
