ACIN I-05-06 – Q & A re: “Dual Status Children” (May 12, 2006)

Counties must implement a protocol on how/when to make a recommendation for concurrent (DSS and Probation) jurisdiction. This ACIN has Q & A’s, including programmatic issues, such as how the foster care time frames are affected when the child moves between foster care and juvenile detention (they stay the same), same visit requirements, and more.
