Quarterly Child Protection Checkup: Assessing Child Protection Reform in Los Angeles County

Publication date: 
11/01/2014

The purpose of this quarterly checkup by Fostering Media Connections is to assess the health of the child protection reform effort in Los Angeles County. In the 207 days since the Blue Ribbon Commission on Child Protection issued its final report, county leaders have given weight to the work conducted by the BRC by voting to implement the commission’s recommendations and by creating a transition team to help implement its ideas. The transition team, DCFS and the Board of Supervisors have since made strides in moving an enormous county administration to see some of those reforms stick.
