Child Protective Services (CPS) provides regional liaisons to the Texas Juvenile Justice Department (TJJD) and to local and county juvenile probation departments (JPD). 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.
