Subject:  The Children’s Justice Act Task Force Survey

ListServe Message Date:  September 18, 2013

The Children’s Justice Act Task Force was established by the Children’s Division, in conjunction with federal legislation, to improve the prosecution and handling of child abuse and neglect cases, and to reduce trauma to child victims of abuse.  Members of the Task Force seek to benefit and enhance children’s lives by recommending improvements in child abuse and neglect laws, policies, programs, professional education and public awareness, and to provide funding, through grants, to support these recommendations.

In an effort to identify any service gaps or specific issues that Task Force funding may be helpful in addressing, we hope to engage the various professionals who interact with the child welfare system statewide, and concerned Missouri citizens in our effort to collect information. We are asking you to complete this survey to inform the Task Force about investigation, prosecution and treatment of child abuse in Missouri.

Information provided in this survey will remain confidential and your e-mail address will not be associated with your responses. The results from this survey will be used to develop recommendations for systems improvement.  In Missouri, cases of child abuse/neglect are investigated using a multi-disciplinary team approach.   Therefore, the Taskforce would appreciate your help by taking a few minutes to complete this survey via Survey Monkey.

The survey can be accessed via the web at:
