GA Child Protection Agency Admits Liability in Child Deaths

After years of suspected neglect, Georgia's child protection agency has admitted that they were responsible for the deaths of over 100 children in their care. A report from 2014 covered cases from families connected to the Division of Family and Child Services. During the investigation, it became clear that there were several errors in the way DFCS reported and handled cases of child abuse. Some cases were considered "closed," but never fully looked into by the agency. The agency stated that they have been subject to budget cuts and a 20% decrease in employees since 2006. The state plans to help DFCS by hiring 175 employees and contracting a consulting firm to plan a new practice model.
