Valdosta - Cases of child abuse are up in Lowndes County.
The Children's Advocacy Center placed more than 1100 pin wheels on the lawn of Valdosta City Hall.
Each one represents a case of child abuse in the county.
They say the numbers are up slightly from last year.
They hope seeing all the pin wheels will inspire the community to get involved.
"We are here to try and promote prevention and awareness of abuse so that the community will come together and try to help us decrease the numbers of reports that are coming in and the number of children being abused," says Brenda Johnson of the CAC.
The pinwheels are in preparation of Child Abuse Prevention Month that begins in April first.
