Child Abuse Hotline
INDIANAPOLIS | State lawmakers have given the Department of Child Services all the new tools they believe the agency needs to protect Hoosier children from abuse and neglect.
INDIANAPOLIS | Child abuse reports by employees of schools, medical facilities, courts or law enforcement could bypass the state's centralized abuse hotline and be referred directly to a local investigator under legislation approved 47-0 by the Indiana Senate Tuesday.
INDIANAPOLIS | The Department of Child Services would get additional employees and be obligated to investigate more abuse claims under legislation approved Wednesday by Indiana House and Senate committees.
INDIANAPOLIS | A legislative panel on Tuesday recommended changing Indiana's centralized child abuse hotline by having county-level case managers decide whether to investigate claims of abuse. Though that change likely won't happen until at least 2014.
INDIANAPOLIS | The Department of Child Services would retain its centralized child abuse hotline, but some community professionals could get immediate assistance from a local DCS worker under a hotline reform plan announced Monday by Republicans studying agency operations.
INDIANAPOLIS | At times emotional and angry, more than a dozen Hoosiers told a legislative panel Wednesday that Indiana's centralized child abuse hotline is ineffective, dangerous and fails protect the state's most vulnerable citizens.
