Latest Arizona child abuse report update shows 6,550 cases assigned

PHOENIX -- A new team assigned to review more than 6,500 child abuse and neglect reports that weren't investigated by Arizona child welfare officials said they've now assigned nearly all of those cases to investigators.

The so-called CARE team named on Dec. 2 by Gov. Jan Brewer provided the latest update Friday.

It said more than 4,200 children identified in the reports now have been seen and more than 3,300 cases have had a response.

The team is led by the head of the state's Juvenile Corrections department, Charles Flanagan.

Department of Economic Security Director Clarence Carter revealed the uninvestigated reports called into a hotline on Nov. 21.

Brewer removed the state's Child Protective Services department from its parent agency Monday and set up a new cabinet-level department to handle child welfare.
