NY: New tools enhance child abuse protection
Neighbor-to-Neighbor News – January 26, 2017
The New York State Senate has passed two bills to help save the lives of abused children who may otherwise slip through the cracks of Child Protective Services. The bills require testing young children for drugs if their guardian is arrested on drug charges, and restrict high caseloads from jeopardizing the investigation of child abuse or maltreatment.
