The Office of Child Abuse Prevention (OCAP) oversees California’s three Citizen Review Panels (CRPs). Each one focuses on a specific topic: child and family services, the prevention of child abuse and neglect, and critical incidents. The responsibilities of the CRPs involve evaluating child welfare policies, practices, and procedures, assessing systemic barriers, and making recommendations to improve and remove barriers. The CRPs can make recommendations that will improve the lives of children and families throughout California.
We are inviting community members and professionals with an interest in child welfare to apply to be on one of the three panels. If you are looking for an opportunity to help positively shape child welfare system improvement in California, we urge you to apply.
