SB17-016 - County Choice Child Protection Teams

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning the optional creation of a child protection team by a county.

Legislative Audit Committee.

Current law requires the creation of a child protection team for any county or group of contiguous counties receiving more than 50 referrals related to child abuse or neglect in a year. Other counties or groups of contiguous counties are encouraged, but not required, to establish a child protection team. The bill makes it optional for all counties and groups of contiguous counties to establish a child protection team, at the discretion of the county director or the directors of a contiguous group of counties. The state department of human services is directed to include a summary and description of the work of child protection teams in its annual 'State Measurement for Accountable, Responsive, and Transparent (SMART) Government Act' presentation.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
