Supervisor Barger seeks review of quality of care and access to services in response to death of Lan

LOS ANGELES COUNTY – Supervisor Kathryn Barger will introduce a motion Tuesday to direct the Office of Child Protection, law enforcement and child protective services to review the history of contacts with the family of Anthony Avalos and identify any system breakdowns and overarching issues that may have impacted access to services.

Her motion also asks for an assessment of staffing levels and adequate supervision for the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) offices in the Antelope Valley, as well as the integration of law enforcement with DCFS in child abuse and neglect referrals.
