The State of Texas has launched a review of the investigations and practices of Texas Child Protective Services. The Texas CPS is the state agency charged with investigated incidents and reports of child report. CPS also has the responsibility of protecting children and removing them if it appears that the child is at risk for further abuse and / or personal injuries. Child safety advocates argue that the CPS system failed many children. The Texas state review team is investigating to determine if break downs in the system caused or contributed to the deaths of children who could have been better helped or protected with intervention by the Texas CPS system.
