Children's & Women's

Child Safety Team

The Child Safety Team assesses children referred when a concern for possible physical, sexual emotional abuse has arisen.  The child's evaluation is performed by a specially trained child interviewer and a forensic pediatrician.  The child's interview is video recorded, they are examined and their injuries are documented.  Upon evaluation, appropriate mental health services and support services are set up for the child and family so they can begin the healing process.  A detailed report is made for investigators who use it to make decisions about the child's safety and prosecution of the perpetrator.  The clinical staff frequently testifies about their findings in court.
