Broward banks $15.3M for child protective investigations

by carlislewillard

Broward received the largest cut among counties cleared for Sheriff’s Department grants to cover child protective investigation services this year.

The county will receive $15.27 million through the Department of Children and Families, which apportioned about $59.1 million to seven counties.

For most counties, DCF employs its own child protective investigators. In Broward, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pasco, Pinellas, Seminole and Walton counties, DCF relies on local police with funding from annual appropriations.

On March 10, lawmakers approved legislation by Senate Democratic Leader Lauren Book and Rep. Christine Hunschofsky allowing some of the annual grants to roll over into the next year.
