State Child Care Is Safer

Cheyenne, Wy – Children who are under state care are safer. That is the conclusion of a report by a group called the Wyoming Citizen Review panel. But the same report says the state needs to make sure the long term needs of children are taken care of. Department of Family Services Director Roger McDaniel says that is his next priority. The report also says the state needs to do better at protecting a child's cultural heritage and that those who have been removed from their home still have access to their families.
