Child Protective Services
Child Protective Services responds to reports of child abuse and neglect by conducting family assessments and investigations. In addition, supportive services may be provided to families for which children are assessed to be at risk. The CPS Hotline/Helpline screens reports of suspected child abuse and neglect, as well as provides guidance and information in response to requests for resources and support services.
In Fiscal Year 2015, Child Protective Services (CPS) assessed or investigated 2,544 cases of child abuse and/or neglect in Fairfax County. The most common form of reported maltreatment was physical abuse, followed by neglect, which includes the inadequate supervision of children.
