Arizona debacle spotlights child-welfare agencies
Arizona abuse cases to be reviewed by next week
In this Thursday, Nov. 21, 2013 photo, Clarence Carter, director of Arizona's Child Protective Services (CPS), shares what Gov. Jan Brewer's reaction was when he told her that CPS missed investigating 6,000 child abuse cases, during a discussion with the Arizona Child Protective Services (CPS) oversight committee, in Phoenix. The revelation that about 6,000 cases of suspected child abuse reported to the state's CPS hotline were never investigated has cast a disturbing spotlight on a state department in disarray as officials call for investigations and accountability.
