On April 12, 2017, Children Services hosted a Walk for Child Abuse/Neglect Awareness. Prosecutor Heck was a featured speaker.
Since 1983, the month of April has been designated as National Child Abuse Awareness Month. On April 5, 2017, during a press event at CARE House to acknowledge it, Prosecutor Heck gave special recognition to Linda Kerley, an employee of Quality Inn in Butler Township, for her quick action by calling police when she saw an 8-year-old girl being sexually assaulted on the property.
On January 3, 2017, prosecutor Heck was sworn in, by Dayton Municipal Court Judge Daniel Gehres, for his seventh full term of office.
