State officials and child welfare professionals seeking to improve child protection services in their State can visit the new Citizen Review Panels web section provided by the National Resource Center for Child Protective Services. The section provides information on meeting the State CAPTA requirements and on the ways a Citizen Review Panel can be used as a tool for improving child protection services. The section also features resources and materials to help train and develop panel participants.
