Subject:Re: Partnerships between Police and Child Welfare

A number of jurisdictions (EG: Clark County, NV) have implemented Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs) to clarify roles and responsibilities between the CPS agency and law enforcement agencies in situations (EG: arrests of parents) which might result in children coming into CPS custody. Clark County in 2009 reported a sharp reduction in emergency child removals by law enforcement agencies following implementation of these MOUs and other front-end system reforms. Also in 2009, the states of NM and OK both passed legislation requiring joint law enforcement-CPS response to situations in which emergency child removal was imminent / likely. OK took a more direct approach to implementing their legislation, but I am not up-to-date on what happened in either state in terms of numbers of emergency removals or out-of-home placements. --- On Thu, 11/17/11, Jane Marshall wrote: From: Jane Marshall Subject: Re: Partnerships between Police & Child Welfare To: child-maltreatment-research-l@list.cornell.edu Date: Thursday, November 17, 2011, 2:34 PM Dear all, I am looking for information, either anecdotal or empirical, on partnerships between child welfare and police.
