Statistics Fiscal Year 2002

Oklahoma Department of Human Services Children and Family Services Division Child Protective Services Programs Office

STATISTICS The Oklahoma Department of Human Services (OKDHS) is charged with the responsibility of promptly investigating or assessing all accepted reports of child abuse and neglect and maintaining a record of the findings of those investigations and conclusions of those assessments. Reports of all investigations are forwarded to the district attorney with recommendations for disposition. OKDHS Child Welfare staff work to provide maximum safety for children and to enable families to remain together, if at all possible. The majority of families that are identified through a report of abuse or neglect can be assisted through services from either community agencies or, if appropriate, through voluntary services from OKDHS. In serious cases of abuse or neglect, however, court intervention and removal of the children from their homes may be necessary. Removal of a child from his or her home can occur either through a court order or, in the case of an emergency, by law enforcement. OKDHS Child Welfare staff do not have the authority to remove children from their homes. This statistical document for state fiscal year 2002 (July 1, 2001, through June 30, 2002) reflects data on child abuse and neglect reports received and accepted for investigation. Also included in this document is an alternative category of response to reports, the assessment. Assessments are conducted when the allegation of abuse or neglect does not constitute a serious or immediate threat to a child’s health or safety. Investigations are conducted when the report contains allegations of serious threats to the alleged child victim’s safety. This statistical document reflects the findings categories that are possible once an investigation has been completed. >

A finding of services not needed – means that there is no abuse or neglect and the family does not need any prevention or intervention services;

>

A finding of services recommended – means that the allegations are determined to be unfounded but the family could benefit from prevention or intervention services;

>

A finding of confirmed services recommended – means that the allegations, based on credible evidence, constitute child abuse or neglect and services without court intervention will assist the family;

STATISTICS >

A finding of confirmed court intervention – means that the allegations, based on credible evidence, constitute child abuse or neglect of such a serious nature that court intervention is recommended; and

> A finding of reasonable parental discipline – means that the person responsible for a child used ordinary force and age appropriate reasonable discipline. This finding results in expungement of record of the referral and assessment or investigation. OKDHS received 56,562 reports on families and determined after screening that 38,077 reports had allegations that met the definition of abuse and neglect and required investigation or assessment. There were 62,795 children for whom an investigation was completed and a finding made. Findings are not made in assessments.

REPORTS The following table details the number of reports received and screened, by county, during fiscal 2002. Each report is screened to assure that it meets the statutory definition of abuse and neglect and that it is within the legal scope of OKDHS. Once a report is accepted, an investigation or assessment is completed on behalf of each alleged child victim identified in the report. A report may have only one identified child victim or there may be multiple identified child victims. During fiscal 2002, there were 56,562 reports received and screened. After screening, 38,077 reports were accepted for investigation or assessment.
