SWI Policy and Procedures October 2016
When there are allegations of abuse or neglect, but it is not known whether the parent or child care provider who is subject to regulation by Child Care Licensing (CCL) is the perpetrator, the intake specialist completes a CPS and a CCL intake.
When determining whether dual intakes are needed, consider the following factors:
• There is no information to indicate where the incident occurred or who was caring for the child when the injury occurred.
• There is conflicting information regarding where the incident occurred.
• Information is provided about where the incident occurred but there is reason to doubt the validity of that information.
When a child is the victim of abuse, neglect, or exploitation by a child care provider and the parent is not protective, dual intakes may be necessary depending on the severity of the abuse, neglect, or exploitation.
