Illinois House Bill Would Mandate that Department of Children and Family Services Notify Police About Potential Instances of Child Neglect or Abuse

The Illinois House passed a bill 114-0 that would mandate that the state Department of Children and Family Services notify police about potential instances of child neglect or abuse. Under House Bill 5219, telephone calls made to the Department’s hotline would have to be reported promptly to local police. The Department apparently opposed portions of the bill and in particular the provision regarding the hotline notification.  The bill now goes to the Illinois Senate.  Source:  pjstar.com.

Its sad when I have to report abuse by foster parents. DCFS is going to have to tell my grandchildren why they are being abused.
