DCS plans to announce reorganization

Print | Front Page | Email this story

NASHVILLE (AP) — Officials with the Tennessee Department of Children's Service are unveiling a reorganization of the troubled child welfare agency.

Interim Commissioner Jim Henry has scheduled a news conference on Monday afternoon to announce changes that will address problems with child safety, health and programming.

DCS has been under heightened scrutiny over how it handled abuse and neglect investigations of more than 200 children who later died or were seriously injured. Former Commissioner Kate O'Day resigned in February after department officials told a federal judge they didn't have an accurate count of how many of the children had died.

The agency also will be before a Nashville judge Wednesday over a public records case filed by The Tennessean and joined by The Associated Press and 10 other news organizations.
