Quality of Work Life of Child Protection Services Investigators in Child Welfare and Law Enforcement Agencies (Workshop 123)
Florida is the only state that has experimented with turning over all responsibility for child maltreatment investigations to a law enforcement agency. To address several concerns that were expressed when the experiment began, in the fall of 2001, the Center for the Study of Youth Policy at the University of Pennsylvania conducted a survey of the Child Protective Investigators in four Florida county Sheriff's Offices and in three countries where the Department of Children and Families still conducted investigations. The workshop presents survey results and discusses their implications with respect to the challenges facing child protective service systems.
