Is there any kind of process or procedure for foster agencies and/or ACS to get notified of parents’ recent arrests, or police reports or number of emergency calls at the home of parents in the process of reunification with their child in foster care?
I’m guessing that a parent could be arrested on a Friday (for anything) but as long as they make it to the visit on Wednesday, no one is the wiser. Hypothetically, couldn’t domestic violence calls be coming in constantly to the parent’s home but without children there (since they are already in foster care), the call is never forwarded to ACS? I’m thinking that the reunification process could continue to chug along, visits be bumped up to weekends, then 5 day visits and then returned despite the continued safety issues.
Tell me there’s a process that I just don’t know about…
