    1. To be honest, I was surprised that CT doesn’t consider all adults mandated reporters. It just makes sense that we would be.

      1. The “LINK” system was developed in the early/mid ’90s and the online portion first went live in summer of ’96. I first was testing back end interfaces with other systems and federal reports (National Child Abuse and Neglect Systems (NCANDS) and Adoption and Foster Care Report System (AFCARS) I left then came back in ’99 to test the Y2K upgrades that covered some other upgrades to the system. CT was, I believe, one of the first if not the first states to have an up and operational SACWIS (Statewide Automated Child Welfare Information System). It like many other states did the development under a court order and was done to give the social workers the integrated tool that covered the entire life of child welfare from initial report of abuse/neglect through foster care and adoption and integrated the investigations of both abuse and of providers offering services

  1. I’m with you 100%. Everyone needs to take responsibility and report if they see something/hear something. I want to scream about this but it’s like I’m in a sound-proof room.
