Transporting a Child During the Investigation

Item 2247 and its sub-items have been temporarily deleted from the CPS Handbook as portions of them are no longer current due to the July 28, 2008 5th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling in the Gates case. CPS staff is instructed to refer to PSA 08-128 and the Legal Advisory attached to it. Staff should consult with supervisors for further direction. New policy will be placed on line as quickly as possible.
