DENVER — Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2013 — Gov. John Hickenlooper will be joined Wednesday by Reggie Bicha, Executive Director of the Department of Human Services, and members of the General Assembly to introduce the second phase of the state’s Child Welfare Plan called “Keeping Kids Safe and Families Healthy 2.0.”

When: 10:15 a.m., Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2013

Where: West Foyer, State Capitol

The second phase calls for a statewide hotline to report possible child abuse or neglect; training for mandatory reporters of abuse or neglect; and a public website that will contain statewide and county-specific child protection data.

These changes build on an effort announced by the governor nearly 12 months ago that detailed a common practice approach for all 64 counties, a new performance management system, redesigned employee training strategies, funding reform and increased transparency.
