09-OCFS-LCM-10: Child Protective Services Access to Criminal History Records
The purpose of this Local Commissioners Memorandum (LCM) is to provide local social services districts (local districts) with information about how Child Protective Services (CPS) units can access criminal conviction records of adults who are either named in an open CPS report or residing in the residence of a child named in a report, as permitted by Chapter 602 of the Laws of 2008. This memorandum describes the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) electronic criminal history record information database that local district CPS units will be able to access, informs local districts about DCJS rules and policies regarding the use of the database and about how local districts can apply to access it, and provides recommendations for the development of protocols to access and use the database.
