This bill expands the membership of the New Jersey Task Force on Child Abuse and Neglect from 29 to 30, to include a member of the Child Placement Advisory Council. The Child Placement Advisory Council was established pursuant to P.L.1977, c.424 (C.30:4C-51 et seq.). The council oversees child placement review boards and reviews the policies, practices, and procedures of the Division of Child Protection and Permanency (DCPP) in the Department of Children and Families with respect to the placement of children outside their homes. The New Jersey Task Force on Child Abuse and Neglect is mandated to study and develop recommendations regarding the most effective means of improving the quality and scope of child protective and preventive services provided by State government, including a review of the practices and policies used by DCPP. Since both the council and the task force have similar mandates, it is appropriate that a member of the council be included on the task force to help in its deliberations and assist in developing recommendations to help children receiving child protective services from DCPP.
