DFPS Commissioner Whitman Issues 10-Point Priority Plan for CPS

New DFPS Commissioner Hank Whitman released a letter to Governor Abbott on July 5 laying out his “10-point plan for CPS.” Highlights include:

  • All 10 CPS regional directors must reapply for their jobs.
  • CPS Transformation will continue.
  • CPS will work with the Texas Department of Public Safety to develop a team of “information analysts” to “gather information about the household for a caseworker” so that “a CPS investigator responding to a new report will now have up-to-date information about the criminal history of any household member.”
  • There will be a review of CPS Special Investigators.
  • There will be efforts to “rejuvenate and aggressively expand” Foster Care Redesign.
  • Steps will be taken to increase and expand PEI (Prevention and Early Intervention) programs.
