ISSUE: First report of child fatality review panel
OUR VIEW: Children will be at risk for another year
The Child Fatality and Near Fatality External Review Panel has filed its first annual report. Unfortunately, it was without any specific recommendations for improvement to Kentucky’s child protection programs. Although improvement recommendations are required by KRS 620.055, the panel says it will instead focus its investigative review activities in the coming year on improving its own case review processes.
