FAQ: Task Force on Child Protection Recommendations
January 9, 2013

PCPA is a member of the state’s Protect Our Children Committee (POCC) led by Cathy Palm. POCC efforts have been to improve the policies and programs in Pennsylvania designed to prevent, investigate, and respond to child abuse. Following the 2012 events at the Pennsylvania State University the POCC (represented by Palm and other members) served on the state’s Task Force on Child Protection. That task force released its more that 400-page report and recommendations in late 2012. It is anticipated that the General Assembly will move forward to implement many of those recommendations. POCC has provided a concise and useful Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document based on the work of the Task Force on Child Protection. This FAQ is available here.
