L.A. Child Protection Checkup: August 2014

The quarterly “Los Angeles Child Protection Checkup” tracks the implementation of the 42 recommendations issued by the Los Angeles County Blue Ribbon Commission on Child Protection in April 2014. The county’s Board of Supervisors created the Blue Ribbon Commission in June 2013, following a spate of bad press centering on child death and systemic issues that have plagued the county’s child welfare system for decades.

The Child Protection Checkup divides the commission’s recommendations into seven broader categories: 1) Consolidation of Authority, 2) Maltreatment Prevention and Early Intervention, 3) General Health and Children’s Health, 4) Workforce and Contracts, 5) Child Placement, and 6) Law Enforcement.

This is the first volume of this quarterly report.
