Author:Many, Michele

Subject:Criteria for accepting cases for investigation - Child Protection

I'd appreciate any guidance with these questions: 1) I believe the criteria for accepting cases by Child Protection is determined state-by-state. If so, a) Are there any acceptance or "refer out" criteria that are common to all states? b) How are these criterion set? c) How often are they revised? Thank you for your help with this. Michele M.
