County child welfare department In his long career in public riddles jewelry employment, Los Angeles County child welfare chief Philip L.
Browning told the Board of Supervisors one day in 2013, "I've never turned down any 'help' and I don't intend to today." Browning went on to talk about all the "help" that he and his many predecessors in that politically hazardous position had been offered. Despite his proficiency in county diplomacy, it was fairly clear from his tone that Browning was using the word "help" as though it ought to be written in quotes the implication being that what might seem like help to those offering it could look more like distraction and interference to those on the receiving end. The occasion was the board's debate over whether to establish a Blue Ribbon Commission on Child Protection to help the county figure out what went wrong in the series pandora jewelry pandora of events that led to the horrendous abuse and ultimate death of 8 year old Gabriel Fernandez in Palmdale and to ensure that similar breakdowns did not occur again. During the debate, then Supervisor Don Knabe correctly pointed out that the county already had accumulated a stack of reports on the department's failings. Where Knabe seemed wrong but time will tell was in his belief that little of value could come out of a fresh look. The Board of Supervisors is constantly tempted to reorder its child protection priorities in response to horrendous and well publicized individual cases. The point of the Blue Ribbon Commission was to take an entirely new approach by looking not just at social workers at the Department of Children and Family Services but at the child protection efforts throughout the vast county bureaucracy, including the Board of Supervisors, the sheriff and the district attorney. For example, how well do sheriff's deputies perform when responding to reports of child abuse? A divided board voted to establish the commission, which came back with a searing report that placed much of the blame for the insular and uncoordinated county response to child welfare problems on the supervisors themselves. The board responded with several policy changes and established an Office pandora beads 2013 of Child Protection to monitor ongoing reform efforts and generally keep things on track. Browning moved forward independently of the commission's "help" by pushing for better, more demanding training of social pandora cheap australia workers and funding to update technology with smartphones, for example so that social workers finally had at their disposal the same kind of instantaneous communication that has long been in the hands of the average middle school student.
The department also went on a hiring binge to reduce caseloads, although labor and management will argue over whether the hiring was the result of strong leadership or a two day strike by frustrated social workers who were desperate to bring attention to their plight. Browning previously had been happy and successful as director of a different county department and moved to DCFS in 2011 only reluctantly, on the promise that the gig would be "temporary" while the board looked for a permanent leader. No new leader was hired.
