Description

This dataset contains aggregate data by State Fiscal Year for all reports of abuse/neglect accepted by DCF for either a traditional Child Protective Services (CPS) Investigation, or as of SFY2012, a Family Assessment Response (FAR). Figures are provided by mandated Response Time and Response Type, for each DCF Area Office each SFY beginning with 2005. Each report accepted is screened for safety and risk factors, and assigned an amount of time within which the agency is required to respond to the report. Mandated response times include ?Same Day?, ?24 Hours?, and ?72 Hours?. Traditionally, DCF has had only one manner of responding to such reports, which was a mandated Child Protective Services (CPS) Investigation. As of April 2012, DCF began responding to low-risk reports through a voluntary Family Assessment Response (FAR) process. Reports handled through a FAR response still contain allegations that meet the statutory definitions of neglect, but they do not receive a decision concerning whether they are substantiated or not. This policy has resulted in fewer substantiated allegations since its implementation, but the agency continues to serve as many or more families reported for abuse/neglect.
