& Child Protective Investigations (CFOP 170-5)

Tell Us How We’re Doing!

The effort to establish a comprehensive set of child welfare operating procedures for the Hotline and Child Protective Investigation staff began early last year. Participation and feedback from Hotline staff, child protective investigators, case managers, Children’s Legal Services, and other professional disciplines, [. . .] was integral to this process. The results of this collaborative effort, Completing Hotline Intake Assessment (CFOP 170-2) and Child Protective Investigations (CFOP 170-5) will be effective April 4, 2016.
