Child Abuse

 
On September 5, 2002 members of the Law Enforcement Planning Council and representatives from the State Attorney's Office, Department of Children and Families (DCF), Community Alliance of Palm Beach County and others met to formally sign the Memorandum of Understanding with regard to child abuse protocols for DCF and law enforcement officers.

This protocol will ensure that law enforcement responds with DCF investigators for any calls that come in over the 911 lines or the DCF Hotlines. Whether the original call comes to law enforcement or to DCF, both agencies will respond and proceed with both a criminal investigation and a child abuse investigation.
