Child Protection Team
Children are referred to CPT by the Dept. of Children and Families (DCF), the agency responsible for answering the Abuse Hotline. Following the assessment, staff makes a recommendation to DCF and law enforcement (if involved), who determine what happens next.
If you know of or suspect child abuse,
CPT Medical Services provides comprehensive medical assessments for children who have suffered some type of abuse or neglect. The goal of the assessment is to detect, diagnose, document and treat any injuries or conditions that may have resulted from suspected abuse or neglect.
