CUYAHOGA COUNTY, OH (WOIO) - A first look at what needs to change to better protect the kids of families social services is overseeing.

Local headlines have detailed cases of children hurt or killed by loved ones - even after families have interacted with Cuyahoga County social workers.

Now, a special committee wants better scrutiny of so-called high-risk families.

A small group of specialists should decide when kids go back to families if the agency takes them.

And the agency needs to stay involved with the families when the kids return.

19 Action News Reporter Ed Gallek will have much more on this story starting First at Four.
