PA: Audit finds staffing shortages, casework overload for Dauphin County CYS
Penn Live – February 06, 2017
The Dauphin County Social Services for Children and Youth struggled with serious staffing shortages and increased caseloads leading up to the death of 9-year-old Jarrod Tutko, Jr. Pa. Auditor General Eugene DePasquale recently released the audit on the agency more than two years after Tutko’s death — which was the result of neglect and starvation. DePasquale’s audit — which covered July 2010 through June 2014 — found that the agency had staffing shortages while dealing with increased caseloads as the result of amendments to the Child Protective Services Law.
