DCF has updated its Protective Intake Policy
Protective Intake Policy 86-015 updated June 22, 2020
The DCF Protective Intake Policy, which had a major update on February 28, 2016, had some additional changes that went into effect June 22, 2020. According to CPCS Attorney Laura Bouliane and Social Worker Julianne Dowd, "Despite some changes to the format and language used, the substance of the policy is largely the same."
The Protective Intake Policy Revised 6/22/2020 may be found here: www.mass.gov/doc/dcf-protective-intake-policy-june-2020/download. I hope to get back to this post and highlight the changes soon. For the moment, my favorite change is that is is posted as a searchable and copyable pdf instead of the page view image-type pdf of most of their other policies.
