Child Protective Investigations

The Child Protective Investigations Division is responsible for investigating over 4,000 abuse and neglect complaints for the children of Pasco County. This division utilizes many community providers and resources to assist families and positively enable and empower them to maintain stability and self-sufficiency while ensuring their children are safe from harm.

With approximately 300 children residing in Foster care in Pasco County, we currently have 96 foster homes and are in need of additional foster homes to care for these amazing children.
