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. Thank you, Emily Douglas --- Emily M. Douglas, Ph.D. Associate Professor | School of Social Work Director, Grad.
