CPS May 2005

Child Originally Alleged To Be a Victim

The overall role for a child originally alleged to be a victim in the investigation is considered "unknown (unable to determine)" when:

  ·  the worker gave the disposition of "unable to determine" to an allegation that had originally named the child as an alleged victim in the investigation because the worker could not determine whether the allegation was accurate; and 

  ·  the allegation with the "unable to determine" disposition was the only allegation originally naming the child as an alleged victim in the investigation; or all of the other allegations originally naming the child as an alleged victim in the investigation were also given the disposition of "unable to determine" or were given the disposition of "unable to complete" or "ruled out."

Person Originally Alleged To Be a Perpetrator

The overall role for a person (child or adult) who was originally alleged to be a perpetrator in the investigation would be "unknown (unable to determine)" when:

  ·  the allegation with the "unable to determine" disposition was the only allegation originally naming the person as an alleged perpetrator in the investigation; or all of the other allegations originally naming the person as an alleged perpetrator in the investigation were also given the disposition of "unable to determine" or were given the disposition of "unable to complete" or "ruled out."

Child Originally Alleged To Be a Victim and a Perpetrator

The overall role for a child originally alleged to be both a victim and a perpetrator in the investigation is considered "unknown (unable to determine)" when:
