Currently there is no system for filing a complaint against a CPS who knowingly falsified information in a case. There is also no way to formally complain about harassment and threats by a worker even after all allegations of abuse or neglect have been proven untrue. Complaints were laughed at by supervisors and ignored all the way to the very head of DHS at the state level!! An Emmet County, MI CPS worker who has knowingly lied about at least one case. Her supervisor laughed about it when the family tried to file a formal complaint. These are not the kind of people who should be allowed to decide the fate of innocent families. Yet all the way to the head of DHS at the State level, complaints are ignored and there is no formal complaint system to protect families from rogue case workers. Also, under the curent law, I can be protected as an anonymous tipper even if I knowingly file false accusations of abuse or neglect. I can do it every single day and it will be investigated and I will be protected even when they know the accusations have been falsified. This needs to change.

      CPS has removed a family member and has stated they are the ultimate authority. Gross abuse of power without regard for a child's well being.

      I personally have been impacted by false accusations due to an ex who has tried everything, from physical abuse to mental abuse, to destroy me. The worker who came to my house even PERSONALLY KNEW my ex and had no current issues however brought up an incident, WHICH INVOLVED NO CHILDREN BUT was an ADULT ARGUMENT, from A YEAR AGO! They interviewed my child and he confirmed there was no problems and there has been no problems yet STILL he comes to my house and threatens me. The worker even asked if I thought I wouldn't have these problems if I let my son see his dad more?! He also asked my son if he wanted to go love with his dad! What is that about?! Now there is nothing I can do but sit for a month and wait to see if they decide to UNJUSTLY CHARGE US?! That is not right nor just!

      Agencies with legal authority should all be accountable in some fashion. We have a Constitution in this country and they seem to forget that.
