What happens after a report is made?

After county departments receive a report of concern regarding a child/youth/adult, the report is reviewed by a team. The team determines whether the report rises to the legal definition for an investigation or assessment.  If the report does meet the legal definition of abuse or neglect a caseworker will be assigned to assess the concern.
