Dependency Team Members

The DCS Investigating Case Manager is the first responder from DCS when a credible allegation of abuse or neglect occurs. 

The DCS Investigating Case Manager determines if abuse or neglect has occurred and will assess safety needs of all children in the home. The Investigating Case Manager can provide services to remedy the situation and try to keep the family together; however, if their investigation determines the child’s immediate safety requires removal from the home, the Investigating Case Manager will work with the Assistant Attorney General to file a dependency petition for DCS to obtain custody of the child.
