Removal of Redundant Policy
6861 Investigations of Abuse and Neglect in Adoptive Homes is deleted because the policy describes:
· investigations in unconsummated adoptive placements that are now conducted by the Licensing division; and
· investigations in consummated adoptive placements, which is unnecessary since CPS has no procedures that are different for adoptive families.
