Botched cases update set for CPS oversight panel

IThe Arizona Legislature’s child protective services oversight committee on Monday is set to hear an update on efforts to investigate more than 6,500 ignored abuse and neglect reports.

The panel of lawmakers and citizens also expects to hear about a probe of the state agency by the Arizona Department of Public Safety.

DPS Director Robert Halliday and the leader of the new review team appointed by Gov. Jan Brewer plan to brief the panel.

The state’s Child Protective Services agency has been in the spotlight since late last month. That’s when Department of Economic Security Director Clarence Carter revealed that thousands of cases requiring investigation had instead been closed in recent years.

Five senior CPs workers are on leave as an investigation into who authorized the action is conducted.
