02222018CM0263RSPRINGFIELD – State Senator Julie Morrison (D-Deerfield), Chair of the Senate Human Services Committee, released the following statement today calling on DCFS to immediately release data on child abuse and neglect. The agency, that has released monthly child abuse data every month for 35 years, has not released any information since July of last year.

β€œIt is completely mind-boggling that DCFS would arbitrarily stop reporting data on child abuse in Illinois. At a time when calls to the child abuse hotline are up, it is important for lawmakers and the general public to know that the agency tasked with protecting children is receiving and investigating claims of child abuse and neglect. I am publicly calling on DCFS to immediately begin releasing this data without delay.”
