Child Protective Services (CPS) provides regional liaisons to the Texas Juvenile Justice Department (TJJD) and to local/count juvenile probation departments (JPDs). TJJD is an agency created in 2011 by merging the Texas Youth Commission (TYC) and Texas Juvenile Probation Commission (TJPC). The liaisons are responsible for:

  • Working with DFPS state headquarters to address questions, issues, and concerns raised in the regions by CPS, TJJD, or local/county JPDs.
  • Reviewing monthly TYC and JPC reports in IMPACT (the DFPS case management system) and forwarding information from those reports to caseworkers.
  • Ensuring that caseworkers maintain accurate information in IMPACT about CPS children adjudicated to TJJD or county juvenile probation departments.
