To kick off Child Abuse and Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month, the Abilene/ Taylor County Child Advocacy Centers has launched the L.O.C.K program.

Outside of the Lowe's Home Improvement store on Ridgemont, there lies a chain link fence, where residents can place padlocks on it to symbolize a stance against child abuse.

The chair of the advocacy, Dee Moore spoke at the event, saying, "We need that the community get involved. That we discuss this openly; that we have communication, dialogue and especially about sexual child abuse."
