HIGHLIGHTED REPORTS

Child Abuse Central Index: Guilty Until Found Innocent

guilty until innocent reportOrange County Grand Jury 2009-10
“The county’s Children and Family Services and police agencies added 792 Orange County residents to the California Department of Justice Child Abuse Central Index in 2009, although lacking sufficient evidence to conclude if child abuse had actually occurred. This attempt to protect children from harm results in a potential for false accusation and violates the principle of innocent-until-proven-guilty.”
Final Report

A reunification plan agreed upon by the parents and CFS is monitored by the Court, and must be fulfilled before the child is returned home. According to a Court official, the reunification plan has intense structures that set forth requirements such as child visitation, parental training, and substance abuse treatment. Most parents do whatever is necessary to reunite with their child.

Some 80% of calls to the hotline come from mandated reporters, a majority of them originating in schools. DCFS must take steps to screen out inappropriate calls.
Child Protective Services: Nothing Ever Changes – Ever

Sacramento-CPS-nothing-ever-changesSacramento County Grand Jury, 2009
When are the citizens going to demand that something be done with CPS? We heard promises that CPS is studying and working on problems. How many years does it take to do “something…or anything?”
Youth in Shadow

youth in shadowVentura Grand Jury, 2010
The inability of states to accurately report the number of youth currently in care or who age out each year, and the inability to determine how well they are doing two, three, or four years after leaving care is discouraging.
Orange County is No Camelot for Emancipating Youth

Orange-County-is-No-CamelotOrange County Grand Jury, 2000
Many of these youths do not have a high school diploma, have few job skills, and limited training in independent living and survival skills. Lacking support, many become homeless.
