I am working on legislation in California and looking for information from other states/Counties and was wondering if you could answer a few questions for me
1. Does your state/county department of CPS/DCFS/etc. handle Domestic and Institutional cases ?
2. Are your Institutional cases handled by a specific team? Or is it mixed in with Domestic?
3. What state and county and you located?
ie- In California - all cases of Institutional (non-familial) abuse cases are automatically deferred to Law Enforcement. In New Jersey- they have a state wide response team/investigative unit specifically for Institutional cases.
