PHILADELPHIA -- Transferring responsibility for investigating reports of child maltreatment from child-welfare agencies to sheriffs' offices in Florida led to an improvement in attitudes among law-enforcement officers and caseworkers.
Researchers at the School of Social Work at the University of Pennsylvania found that law-enforcement officers became more aware of the social services available to children. They also became better attuned to the connection between child maltreatment and poverty.
