The Child Advocacy Center assembles a multidisciplinary team from law enforcement, DCF, Partnership for Strong Families, the medical field and others to share information, discuss outcomes, prevent duplication of services, and determine a course of action to take that is in the best interest of each child. These staffings may occur after the forensic interview but also include cases that may not require an interview or that have already progressed through the  child  protection  system.  

Staffings occur routinely twice per month at the Center, but are also held on an as-needed basis for high risk situations or situations in which the team needs to meet as soon as possible to ensure safety of the children or integrity of the criminal case.  Staffings help keep communication flow open between the agencies and keep children from falling through the cracks of the system.
