Child Protection Team


The Child Protection Team (CPT) is a medically directed multidisciplinary program based on the idea that child abuse and neglect cases involve complex issues and require the expertise of many professionals, in collaboration, to protect children. Florida Statute 39.303 mandates the existence of CPTs to provide assistance and consultation to DCF and law enforcement in cases of suspected abuse and neglect. This program provides expertise in evaluating allegations of abuse and neglect, assessing risk factors, and providing recommendations for interventions to protect children. Services include forensic medical assessments, forensic interviews, social history evaluations, and community service referrals.
