Social-service providers are warning that children could linger longer in foster care if the state of Arizona follows through with a new round of contracts they say will cut rates, lower standards and deter qualified applicants.

The complaints arise as the state is on the verge of awarding new contracts for services the Department of Child Safety insists will get kids out of foster care and into permanent homes more quickly, without increasing costs to the state. The complaints are also bringing to the forefront criticisms usually made in quieter tones about Gov. Doug Ducey's intent to shrink state government and run it "at the speed of business."

An in-depth analysis of Nebraska's child welfare system released Wednesday shows that despite increased funding and regulatory changes during the past few years, there was an increase between January 2013 and June 2015 in cases of children in the system.

Children are not being served adequately because of large caseloads for state employees. Again and again, we are hearing of state facilities and departments that aren't measuring up because of a lack of adequate staffing.

Parents don't not leave their kids alone because they fear something might happen to them. They fear the moral disapproval. Only in the past decade or so has "no child left alone" become the social and legal norm in the U.S.

News reports and crime shows feed exaggerated fears. But Thomas and her co-authors note that legal norms needn't follow inaccurate beliefs about risks. "The fact that many people irrationally fear air travel does not result in air travel being criminalized," they write. "Parents are not arrested for bringing their children with them on airplanes. In contrast, parents are arrested and prosecuted for allowing their children to wait in cars, play in parks, or walk through their neighborhoods without an adult."

A North Pole legislator is accusing the state of "legal kidnapping" for the rise in the number of children in state protective custody.

Rep. Tammie Wilson, R-North Pole, this week called for a grand jury investigation into the Office of Children's Services, alleging the agency has ignored state and federal law in order to put more children into state custody and keep them there.

Baby Braelon has a high fever and was throwing up and his mother had to BEG the workers at her group home to take the baby to the local hospital first and then he was transferred around midnight last night to Children's Hospital because of the severity.

The negligence on the part of a group that is supposed to protect children is outrageous! Even though the baby had a dr's appt the day after he was discharged from the hospital it wasn't til TEN DAYS LATER that they took the baby to be checked!!

The justices examine the language in Arizona's sexual abuse laws, which does not require sexual intent in order to be charged.

"The statue says intentionally or knowingly having sexual contact. Well sexual contact is just the direct or indirect touching of the genital of something else of the child. That is where the changing of the diaper could come into play," said legal analyst Monica Lindstrom.

Prosecutors are asking the Arizona Supreme Court to reinstate a law that allows some people accused of the sexual abuse of minors to be held without bail.

Deputy Maricopa County Attorney David Cole said the constitutional provision limiting access to bail was adopted by voters in 2002. He said the state Court of Appeals, in overturning the law enacted by lawmakers to implement that amendment, failed to give "due consideration to the overwhelming will of the people."

Some families in Erie County paid a terrible price for understaffing in Child Protective Services, but a new report shows that conditions have improved significantly.

Excessive caseloads helped to create conditions that contributed to the deaths of children, including Eain Brooks, Abdifatah Mohamud and Jacob T. Noe. In each case, overworked CPS workers were already familiar with the families.

How difficult but important is the job of Nebraska case workers helping children in crisis? A new report from Julie Rogers, the state inspector general for child welfare, provides a sobering example.

Nebraska child welfare workers, the report says, need to be better trained to study the bodies of babies for signs of abuse. The workers need to understand how to look not only for major bruises but also for more subtle visible signs that can indicate an infant is suffering from physical trauma.
