DCS Admits More Mistakes
Tennessee's Department of Children's Services says it made a mistake with information released earlier this year citing the number of children it had contact with that then died. In 2011 DCS first reported 47 children it had contact with died that number has changed to 91. In the year 2012 they missed the mark by over twenty children now saying 103 children is the accurate number that had contact with DCS before their deaths. The former director left DCS after claims of long wait times for reporting abuse, trying to limit media access to records, and failing to take action which resulted in Child deaths.
