New bill would expand who can be a DCFS investigator

A new bill is aiming to expand who can be an investigator for the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS). Right now, child welfare investigators usually have social work backgrounds. HB 125 in the Illinois legislature would broaden that. Rep. Sue Scherer, D-Decatur, says people with criminal justice backgrounds are just as qualified to be investigators. These are the people that go into homes and assess a child’s situation if their safety is in question.
