Child Protection Services (CPS)

By: Tyonna Russ

What is CPS?

CPS is a system that takes kids that are in a home that is treating them wrong and place them in a better home to get them from the danger in the home or from a dangerous person. This makes the children think they are going into good hands and will never get treated badly as long as they are in CPS care.

Sometimes parents get called on by an outsider that have the feeling the parents are treating the children badly so they call CPS hotline and let them know what makes them think the children is in danger. If the CPS system think it's a good enough excuse to go see they will go and investigate the situation. If the information comes out true then they remove the children from the house immediately depending on how bad the situation is. Then the parent(s) have a change to get the children back or if they cannot fix themselves before a time to get observed again then their kids get taken for good. Some children stay in the CPS system not because their parents are bad it could be millions of reason they are in the system some children parents end up passing and have no family to take them in.
