Sounds like they need to be closed completely down and a new office already trained and in place to take over the one present there. Hold protest and Rallies to do this march on your capitol and go after them after all in the name of the children and there safety and the dead beats should go and the thieves to. I AM SURE bet the payments that belong to he care familes that foster have an over seas account!<quoted text>
Yes this is a nationwide problem. Many sites like the American Family Rights Association, fightcps.com , legallykidnapped.com , kidjacked.com , connecticutdcfwatch.com , and others provide much information on the subject.
Here in Ok. so much has come out regarding the deaths of children in custody, DHS employees committing crimes, children put or left in dangerous placements that have died, failing to pay proper reimbursements to foster parents, lack of proper legal representation of children in abuse/neglect cases, and other issues have resulted in a class action lawsuit,(which some think is a sham), legislative hearings,(closed to the public),and a performance audit by an outside firm at a cost of $420,000 to the taxpayers,(to avoid? a state audit like the one that resulted in the firing of the director of the Office of Juvenile Affairs two years ago over the issue of $20mil in "questionable" contracts?). There are many issues in our state that few are aware of that have effect on the safety of a great many children, and if not dealt with properly to bring accountability to our system then the long record of failures and child deaths will continue. And we will continue paying out large sums in lawsuits instead of it going to benefit children.

This country is way behind the times with the laws of children and here protection.
