Subject:RE: Child Death-Related Investigative Reports

Im not sure I understand your distinction between the two types of fatality reviews. Here are the two links I am aware of that conduct fatality reviews. http://ofco.wa.gov/reports/ https://www.dshs.wa.gov/ca/publications/childrens-administration-child-fatality-reports Amelia S.

Box 40957 Olympia, WA 98504-0957 (360) 586-3164 x. 103 (360) 586-8165 Fax amelia.watson@opd.wa.gov From: bounce-119729512-9514214@list.cornell.edu [mailto:bounce-119729512-9514214@list.cornell.edu] On Behalf Of Douglas, Emily M. Sent: Thursday, October 01, 2015 10:14 AM To: Child-Maltreatment-Research-L@cornell.edu Subject: Child Death-Related Investigative Reports Greetings! I am in search of state (or county-level) investigative reports which follow the death of a CPS-involved child. These reports usually document the investigation re: the circumstances leading up to the death and the agency’s involvement with the child/family, and also identify “problem areas” and recommendations for change. Just to be clear, these reports are distinct from those issued by child death review teams. I have identified 4-5 such reports (MA, FL, VA, CT), but would appreciate learning about more.
