CPS Procedures for DEC

These are recommended procedures developed by the National Alliance for Drug Endangered Children.  Various localities may need to adjust the strategies depending on their resources.  As local, state and federal protocols are approved and implemented, this information will be updated.

Child protective services employees are a crucial link between the child, law enforcement and the medical community.  Youngsters will seek answers and reassurance from the CPS worker; law enforcement and medical personnel will depend on CPS to relay instructions and questions to the child. 

The primary duties of CPS in the initial stage of the DEC case include:

1) Assist law enforcement in the collection and documentation of the scene from the child's perspective.  Decide who will photograph scene.

2) Transport or accompany child to medical facility for exam and evaluation.

3) Ensure placement of child in a safe environment.
