Brooklyn DA: Reduce child abuse through nurse service programs

BROOKLYN - The Kings County District Attorney's Office, along with other elected officials, is drumming up support for local nurse service programs.

The free programs are designed to help low-income first-time parents deal with the ups and downs of raising an infant. Experts say many child abuse cases stem from a lack of parenting knowledge.

The district attorney's office says two dozen deaths in Brooklyn each year are attributed to child abuse.
