Office of the Child Advocate: Child Protection Accountability Commission
CPAC Committee Meetings


CPAC is charged with monitoring Delaware’s child protection system and promoting change to the system when issues are identified, in order to ensure the health, safety, and well-being of the state’s abused, neglected, and dependent children. When issues within the system are identified, committees are formed to address those issues. These committees meet throughout the year, and these meetings are open to the public. CPAC and its committees then work together with their system partners to bring about the necessary reforms.
