the purpose is a good and needed thing, however, from what i hear they too are a part of the buddy system when needed. too much power here, they need to be held accountable for their actions, as in showing hard proof to all concerned bfoe they can take action. as the system is they pretty much hae a free hand in removing a child from a home. tips are given up by people who remain unknown and with no proof. see both sides on that one,but whos to say its not just someone seeking trouble or revenge? this system needs an independant system of checks and balances and should be REQUIRED to have investigations and oversight by an agency representing the parents a well. parents have rights to understand full disclosure of any reports and accusations made against them so the truth can be revealed before DCS can take a child from their home. i have seen and heard of many false reports made which is devastating to the entire family, all done "in the best interest of th child" there has to be a better way. DCS as is can be as detramental to the child as an abusive home. the current system doesnt work in many cases.
