DFCS increasing staff, hours to reduce backlog

ATLANTA -- Bobby Cagle, the interim director of the Georgia Division of Family and Children Services, said Tuesday he is increasing staff in an effort to reduce a statewide backlog of cases.

DFCS Child Protective Services currently has more than 3,300 open investigations.

Cagle says, effective right now, investigators will work a minimum of 8 hours overtime per week until the backlog is eliminated.

DFCS has come under fire after several abused children died under its watch.
