The group was formed after the tragic death of Eric Dean, the 4-year-old boy from Pope County who was murdered by his stepmother in 2013 despite repeated reports of abuse.
His case highlighted the need for improvements in the system.
Scott County Health and Human services director Judith Brumfield said it’s a complicated issue.
“Child protection alone is never going to be able to provide the ultimate safety to children,” Brumfield said.
