HB 36 Child protective services; pilot multiple response system.

Child protective services. Requires the State Department of Social Services to establish a three-year pilot multiple response system for responding to reports of child abuse or neglect in three to five areas of the state. Rather than requiring a full-scale investigation of every report, the report will be evaluated by the local department of social services and less serious reports will be subject to a family assessment. The emphasis will be on offering services rather than on determining whether or not abuse or neglect occurred. In family assessment cases no disposition will be entered into the central registry.

This bill is a recommendation of the House Committee on Health, Welfare and Institutions' Special Subcommittee Studying the Death of Valerie Smelser and the Joint Subcommittee Studying the Child Protective Services System in the Commonwealth (HJR 502)

This bill is identical to SB 12.
