Missouri statutes provide that a state-level CFRP panel be appointed by the Department of Social Services. The state CFRP panel is convened bi-annually to provide oversight, identify systemic problems and bring concerns to STAT’s attention. The composition of the state CFRP panel mirrors that of the county CFRP panels: each multidisciplinary child protection profession is represented by a leader in the respective discipline, along with optional members.
