Kimberly Kochem on Preventing Child Abuse (Aired on June 30th and July 1 2018)

Prevention of Child Abuse (Aired on June 30 and Jul 1, 2018)

RadioRotary interviews Kimberly Kochen, Executive Director of The Center for
the Prevention of Child Abuse, located in Poughkeepsie, N, the nonprofit agency
dedicated to the reduction of child maltreatment since 1973. Among their
programs are outreach to elementary schools for educating children and to PTAs
and other groups for educating adults. Almost 17,000 children per year are
served, mostly through lessons in schools, ranging from puppet shows for
younger children to more formal teaching though grade 6. Child abuse is a major
problem but only about one in a thousand children will report it. Everyone who
suspects child abuse should call the NYS Central Registry at 1(800) 342-3720 or
in case of immediate harm, 911. Parents and others are urged to “trust your gut”
if you suspect anything, and take action immediately. Abuse during childhood
often affects the person abused for his or her entire life.

Dana Pavlock on Elder Abuse (Aired on 5-27-17 & 5-28-17)

Elder Abuse Awareness (Aired on May 27 and 28, 2017)

The sixth annual World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, celebrated on June 16, 2017, is discussed on RadioRotary by Susan Davidson of Friends of Seniors and Dana Pavlock of Evercare. Elder abuse can be psychological, financial, sexual, physical, or simply neglectful. It is more of an issue today than in the past because people are living longer, but families no longer have several generations living in the same location. Isolated elders, many suffering from mild to serious dementia, can be easy prey for caregivers of various kinds. Friends of Seniors does not deal directly with elder abuse, but provides medical transportation, grocery shopping, caregiver respite, and similar services through trustworthy volunteers. Evercare is a certified home health care agency that also offers a managed long-term care plan through Medicaid as well as an adult social day program. Together, the two organizations are behind the 2017 World Elder Abuse Awareness Day celebration in Poughkeepsie, a half-day conference on recognition and relief.

Community Policing in the Town of Lloyd (Aired on October 8 and 9, 2016)

Community Policing in the Town of Lloyd (Aired on October 8 and 9, 2016)

Jonah Triebwasser and RadioRotary Producer Kathy Kruger interview Police Chief Daniel Waage of the Town of Lloyd in Ulster County about his program of community policing. Community policing is a law-enforcement philosophy that involves the systematic use of community partnerships to address proactively the conditions that give rise to crime, social disorder, or fear of police. Chief Waage has followed this philosophy from the 2012 start of his work in Lloyd, focusing especially on helping children (and their parents) and senior citizens. The Lloyd Police, working on their own time, produce or participate in fundraising events for local needs. Chief Waage has also instituted programs such as Project CARE, which checks daily on the status of enrolled senior citizens. Educational outreach is provided through classes in such topics as active shooter response training and forums and classes dealing with narcotics abuse. Community involvement includes a Lloyd police sergeant who is a member of Highland Rotary.
