Child Abuse Death Review Team

The Child Abuse Death Review Team was established by statute in 1999 (F.S. Chapter 383.402) and within the Department of Children and Family Services.
Purpose of Child Death Reviews:

  • Develop a community-based approach to address child abuse deaths and contributing factors.
  • Achieve a greater understanding of the causes and contributing factors of deaths resulting from child abuse or neglect
  • Identify gaps, deficiencies or problems in service delivery to children and families by public and private agencies that may be related to child abuse deaths.
  • Develop and implement data-driven recommendations for reducing child abuse and neglect deaths.
