Pittsburgh Post-Gazette – October 04, 2017
Pennsylvania’s auditor general, who recently issued a report critical of the state’s child welfare system, on Wednesday praised Allegheny County’s use of technology in screening for potential child neglect. “While county children and youth services agencies statewide are struggling to work within a broken system, Allegheny County is attempting to use technology so it can more efficiently deploy the resources it has,” Auditor General Eugene DePasquale said in a statement following a visit to the county’s Department of Human Services.
