Every day more than 3 million referrals are made for social services intervention on behalf of abused children. And only one in five cases that are reported to the police will result in criminal prosecution. In fact, less than 40% of child abuse cases will ever be investigated because friends, family, and neighbors are usually too afraid or nervous to report it. So how much information does a social worker get from the abuser before recommending someone for an intervention?
The report states, “These reports are the first step in determining whether or not the particular person who was the subject of an investigation is a high-risk offender. It also gives detailed information about any behavioral problem that may pose a threat to the welfare of the children involved.” The report goes on to say that the investigator is not required by law to ask questions concerning the victim’s sexual abuse history.
The social worker does not have to go through the motions of finding out if the abuser is a repeat offender. The social worker can obtain a referral on the basis of a referral.
The social worker cannot go through the motions of interviewing the suspect. In fact, they do not even need to meet the suspect. They can obtain the name of the abuser and the address of the alleged abuser through a name-and-address lookup. That means if someone has provided false information about himself, she can use the name-and-address information to obtain an address from which to investigate the matter.
This means the social worker can take action on their own. They do not need to take the time to speak to the suspect.
However, the social worker has to find out how much detail from the suspect they want to know. A social worker cannot simply ask them to identify the abuse that occurred to them as a child because the information would have to be shared with other people. They cannot use a person’s address to check to see where they live because this information has to remain confidential.
The social worker cannot even use a phone number of the alleged abuser to investigate if the suspect is telling the truth or not. Because this information must remain confidential, the social worker cannot obtain the information from the suspect.
Finally, the social worker cannot conduct a background check on the suspect or use it to determine whether they have been arrested in the past. Under certain circumstances. As the statute says, the investigator can’t even obtain the social worker’s social security number unless the social worker has asked for it.
The social worker has to work at their own pace to investigate this information. In many cases, they can conduct this investigation without even meeting the suspect.
For instance, the social worker can get an abuser’s criminal history. If they can confirm the information, they can then use it to obtain a police report and use it to investigate whether the suspected abuser has been arrested before.
They can obtain a case report and use it to investigate whether the suspected abuser is telling the truth about their criminal record. This is done by using information from the police records and contacting the alleged abuser.
All of these actions will help the social worker to determine whether or not to give a child protection order. If they are able to confirm the information, they can use the information to investigate further if there is probable cause to suspect that the alleged abuser is engaging in child abuse.
