Now would be a good time to contact the IOG'S office. I am sure they will take all reports.

John Rita, Director of Public Safety must insist all of his MANDATED REPORTERS participate in the training and report the information to the Committee Chair.

Mrs. Carr must follow up in her committee meetings until everyone of the mandated reporters in the departments she reports on to the council; has had their training.

You truly are clueless. Just keep spouting off the same thing.
Did someone not report something they should have? Was there previous unreported abuse?
Does any of this have anything to do with this investigation?
Wrong

Mandated Reporting is not about passing information along to the politicians, so they don't sound stupid when they're asked.
It's about making sure violence is documented to prevent further violence.

It's about making the MANDATED REPORT regarding SAFETY and WELL BEING.
LEAVE THE INVESTIGATING TO THE INVESTIGATORS.

Right, I don't see anything about calling Candace Carr or any other politician. Leave the investigating to investigators and the back door schemes to the politicians.
The problem is, they're all in cahoots in BI.

DCFS DCP Investigators will follow up.
Mandated reporters know exactly who they are and need to call the hotline to report suspected neglect and abuse.
