Conn. department to change response to child abuse
Mar 5, 2012 4:02am
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — The Connecticut Department of Children and Families is changing the way it investigates reports of child neglect and abuse by creating separate responses for low and high-risk incidents.
Beginning Monday, DCF will perform a family assessment in response to all reports that are deemed low and medium risks. The assessment will help families reach out for community resources.
Low-risk cases include things like families improperly clothing children in the winter, whereas high-risk incidents include reports of physical and sexual abuse. The department will continue to respond to high-risk incidents with an investigation.
Currently, all reports of abuse are investigated by DCF, regardless of the risk level.
The change comes under a department initiative, not through state legislation.
We do not know for a fact, but we are pretty sure this is a result of our pal Atty Mike Agranoff. We wish his efforts to reign in the insane terrorists at CPS could become a nation-wide movement on behalf of SANITY and the real, actual BEST INTEREST of children.
