Brooklyn DA: Reduce child abuse through nurse service programs
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.
