Child abuse cases declining in Oklahoma

 Oklahoma City The Child Maltreatment 2009 report was released by the Administration on Children, Youth and Families (ACYF) and is based on national and state statistics about child maltreatment from data collected and reported by child protective services agencies in the National Child Abuse and Neglect Data System (NCANDS).  The following are significant improvements in the Child Protective Services in Oklahoma:

 

  • Absence of Maltreatment in Foster Care - The safety of children in out-of-home care in Oklahoma improved in 2009.  Oklahoma performed at 99.8% which is above the national standard of 99.6%.  This means 99.8% of children in out-of-home care did not experience maltreatment while in care. Oklahoma was one of only 24 states that met or exceeded this national standard.
  • Rate of Maltreatment in Oklahoma – Oklahoma improved to 8.3 victims per 1000 children, which is below the national average of 9.3 victims per 1000 children.
  • Absence of Maltreatment Recurrence of Children – Oklahoma showed an improvement from 90.8 percent in 2005 to 94.2 percent in 2009, meaning fewer than 6 percent experienced repeat maltreatment (defined as a subsequent confirmed report within 6 months of a confirmed report).  
  • Reduction in removals of children from their homes - Oklahoma has seen a 30 percent reduction in the number of children in out-of-home care since July 1, 2007. In State Fiscal Year 2009, 25 percent fewer children were removed than in SFY 2007.
  • CPS response time - Between 2005-2009, Oklahoma reduced the average response time by 50 percent when child maltreatment is reported. The response time average in 2009 was 81 hours, down from the average of 161 hours in 2005. The number is calculated using both priority I and priority II numbers, a system used to categorize the severity of abuse and required response time. Priority I requires a same day response.  Priority II requires a response between 2-15 days.
