Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Department of Child Services Interim Study Committee will meet for the last time Tuesday in the Indiana Government Center to consider bill drafts, a final report and “other business,” according to the committee agenda.

The sixth meeting of the committee begins at 10 a.m. in Conference Rooms 4 and 5. The meeting will be webcast live through the Legislature’s website.

The committee has met with DCS officials to examine around 70 issues related to the agency. Concerns over the agency’s centralized call center were among the topics discussed. The committee is looking into creating a hybrid system for the DCS’ centralized call system, routing calls from anonymous callers and others through the current centralized call center while school officials, medical professionals, judges and other specified individuals would be given direct access to the local child agency office in their communities.

Minutes from the previous meetings are posted on the Legislature’s website.
