Sometimes child or adult protective services, in their efforts to protect the vulnerable or the helpless, go too far and do more harm than good.

In Minnesota new 1996 legislation requires child protection workers to follow new protocols in their investigations, and to give those being investigated information about their rights during the investigation.

This legislation is designed to protect everyone involved in an investigation of an abuse allegation: the possible victim, the care provider, and the investigator.

The subject of an investigation always has the right to record those sessions wherein they are being questioned by child/adult protective services.
