Latest AZ abuse report update shows most kids seen

PHOENIX -- A team assigned to review nearly 6,600 child abuse and neglect reports that weren't investigated by Arizona child welfare officials says most of those children now have been seen by investigators.

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

It said 9,855 children identified in the reports have now been seen and approximately 6,519 cases have had a response.

Three of the cases are on Indian reservations and out of the state's jurisdiction. Those cases have been referred to tribal authorities.

Brewer removed the state's Child Protective Services department from its parent agency and set up a new cabinet-level department to handle child welfare. The CARE team is led by the new department's director.
