The ICPS manual identifies protocols and procedures for the reporting and assessment of suspected institutional child abuse and neglect.


The ICPS guidelines found in this manual assist and guide the Department of Human Services and its representatives in carrying out their legal responsibilities. Inherent in the focus of the guidelines is the belief that, whether public or private, institutions caring for the community's children have an obligation, and a public mandate, to abide by the highest and most stringent standards to assure the protection of children placed in their care.
