Governor Perry Calls For Investigation Of CPS

Governor Rick Perry ordered a statewide investigation into Child Protective Services Thursday.

The governor cited discrepancies in casework documentation, concerns over casework management and inaction when children were exposed to abuse. The investigation comes one day after a Hidalgo County Grand Jury indicted the Department of Family and Protective Services, which oversees CPS. The agency is accused of harming three girls with its inactivity.
