Child Protective Services reform petitions. Please read, sign and share to help get more signatures. 1. Tennessee- At least one Level 1 Expert Child Abuse Investigative and Counseling Services in every CPS Region: Tennessee has its own CPS, and legal outline on how to have certain officials adjust the current laws to better suit the needs of others in the CPS and Governmental protocols. All too often Children are without the services they need in each state. This could be in general or it could be due to location. A lot of times Level one areas like bigger cities with hospitals have the forensic expert services that are needed to assist with certain CPS case investigations. It is up to CPS personnel to transfer those cases, when needed. It is neglectful to not do this in the right circumstances. All too often we see corrupt CPS personnel and this is one of the ways they can abuse and neglect children and their power. Tennessee Legislation should make sure that there is at least one level 1 service center in each CPS region, so that it wouldn't be necessary to transfer the case.
2. Tennessee- Child Civil rights to abuse allegation records: In Many States, the Child Protective Services agencies will only hold onto abuse allegation records, which may contain evidence of abuse, for about 4 -5 years. This is a violation of the child's civil rights, as they have a right to a fair trial when they reach the age of 18 that they would need those records for to have a fair trial, which is the law, and their right. This Petition is to ensure that child abuse allegation records are not discarded after any amount of time until 5 years after the alleged abused minor turns 18, in order to give them fair time to file a civil rights lawsuit if they wish, so their right to a fair trial is protected. This is about protecting the abused, not the alleged abusers. Sign the petition if you wish for the state to enact a statute in regard to this. Thank you.
3. Tennessee CPS agents mandated to be expert forensic child psychologists Tennessee Laws surrounding expert witness and testimony on behalf of a person, usually require an optimal level of expertise, like they have to be the top in their field or receive a certain amount of education to speak on behalf of something. As you all may know, Many CPS personnel seek the job because of their mental disorder and desire to sociopathically prey on the easiest victims of all, children. Not only should these individuals be required to pass a mental evaluation to rule out this type of harmful psychosis, but they should also be required to hold a bachelors degree or higher in child psychology to work for the agency, and more, in order to be the supervisor. The supervisors should be expert forensic child psychologists/ neurologists.
