Hire people who truly care for our children and fire the ones who are allowing children to be beat and murdered. A lot of cps workers turn their backs on innocent kids.

CPS is a broken system it's time to fix it enough is enough !
CPS is an evil, corrupt, and abusive government agency, funded by our tax dollars, who preys upon many innocent parents, guardians, and their children. False reports become "substantiated" by a corrupt agency worker and you and your family's lives are ruined. Innocent parents and guardians are placed on a Child Abuse Registry, even though you were never arrested, charged, or convicted of any child abuse or neglect. In our state of Arizona, your name remains on the registry for 25 years. You cannot get a job working with children and you can never get guardianship of a relative's child because you had a "substantiated" CPS report. Essentially, you have been accused, convicted, and sentenced for a crime you never committed!! Your Constitutional rights do NOT apply with CPS. This agency and its workers have more power than the Family Court Judges who will "defer" to whatever action CPS workers deem should be taken. I have read reports of underground black market child adoption and child sex-rings associated with CPS workers. So, of course, they want babies and children, and they don't care what they have to do to get yours! Beware and fight back against this evil charade of Child "Protective" Services. They need to be scrupulously investigated from the top down. All workers MUST be psychologically evaluated, tested, and investigated. Many need to be fired and charged with crimes! Many of the people who get into this field come from dysfunctional and abusive homes themselves. Who are they to determine who gets investigated and whose children get removed from the only homes they've ever known? Get everyone you know to sign this petition, especially those wronged by CPS!!! The CPS ABUSE needs to be stopped NOW!!!
I'm dealing with them at the moment and its hell. My own mother is the one who reported me because she was upset with me and my husband because we moved out of her care, and refused to let her see our daughter because she was on drugs, im sorry im NOT having that around my babies. I was also IN CPS care because of my mother as a child, up until i was 17.so ive been dealing with them for about 11 years now, and they think that because i was abused as a child, that i will abuse my daughter, and im fed up. im trying everything in my power to get them out again. Its hard. but im trying to tell my husband that we dont have to do crap for them, and he wont listen to me. and they are getting more and more calls from her that are lies, and they are just a bunch of crap. But this site was very, very helpful for me Thanks so much.

My son was taken from me last week but the court had to make CPS give him back 2 days ago because they had no evidence. The false accusations that were made against me and my child's father were made by an ex boyfriend of mine all because I left him. It traumatized my family and the way the CPS worker and the police treated us was inhuman. We are good parents and for some mean stranger coming into our home and telling me Im a bad mother and rip my child from my arms was unlawful. I think if you want to make a report to CPS you have to go in there and do it in person. Nobody who want's to make a false report isnt gonna go in and do it and if they do they get criminally charged. That way CPS can focus on the children that are being abused rather than prey on innocent families.
My 13 y.o. daughter was taken after I was assaulted. They lied so much and charged me so much money that I lost all my worldly goods ruining any chance to provide a home and opportunity for my daughter.
In 1995, CPS put my boys in foster care and my husband was accused of child abuse which was later dropped. My daughter stayed with my husband and myself throughout. I fought to get my boys back and when I did finally got them back, they were traumatized and are still traumatized to this day. I later found out the foster parent were indicted for making meth in their basement and another foster father threatened to sit on the boys if they misbehaved, he weighted over 300 lbs. Now my son and his g/f are victims of CPS and their child is in foster care.
Cps has taken my childrens away because of one drug test. I have done everthing they have asked but Ihave yet to even get unsupervised visits. I'm the mother. They belong with me and there father. We have never abused them. We miss them so much. Please please help me. I'm not going to sit around and let them take my children away because of how they feel about me or my husband. Thank you
CPS stole our child at birth. These people have zero accountability. We want them held CRIMINALLY & CIVILLY LIABLE like the rest of us are when we commit a crime.

Please help my kids they need to come home were they belong.
Please help my kids they need to come home were they belong.
CPS is the devil!
I've experienced this first hand Glad to sign this petition.
C.P.S. always acts outside of the law and the Judges that side with unfactual evidence or statements or reporting are working outside of the law also inwhich makes them no better then common criminals. C.P.S ethics are of low or no standards.
I have been subject to this very nightmare as a parent wrongly accused and abused by this corrupt system, known oddly enough, as the Department of Children and Family Services and/or Child Protective Services. Working under the guise of protecting this nations children from being abused by their own parents. Parents, who in most cases, are not abusing these children, THEIR children, whom they love, at all! In all actuality, what they are doing is nothing more than trying to raise them the best way they know how. Some with very meager means and resources to work with. They claim to be saving our children from harm by predicting abuse and neglect where it hasn't happened. DCFS/CPS, in all of their infinite wisdom, can foresee a future of detriment for a child that no one else can? No one that works or operates outside that agency or it's affiliates, of course. In mine and my daughters case, their decision to remove her from my care, all the while totally ignoring and abusing all of our constitutional rights, has resulted in disaster for us over the past 5 plus years since our nightmare began. Now it spans over three state lines and I'm now fighting with the State of Louisiana to regain custody of her. She's going to be 15 on September 1, 2013. She was kidnapped in California and taken from me on November 11, 2007. I lost all contact with her up until March of 2012. I find myself still at odds with these people because of their accusatory, snide and downright hostile and uncooperative attitudes which flows over into their Operating Procedures. Procedures which I find to be uncalled for and at the very least degrading. Calling for mandatory random drug testing, (When there is no prior history of any drug rehabilitation or arrests), in conjunction with submitting to and enrolling in a 90 day in-house drug rehab program. This amounts to as much as self incrimination! That's just for starters! Sexual behavior classes, parenting classes, psychiatric therapy, allowing them access to your home without notice at any time, your name on a National Child Abuse Index along with real child murderers and pedophiles! Alll with absolutely no substantiation or proof of their claims other than hearsay from a disgruntled ex and/or another nameless faceless accuser. But the worst part is what this has done to my daughter and the irreparable damage done to her all because CPS acted in a fashion that was inexcusable in it's all-knowing, all-seeing, self-riteous capacity as glorified, government sanctioned kidnappers and home wreckers. She has been shuffled back and forth, neglected in a tangible sense this time around, been in and out of children's hospitals, been prescribed and forced to take psychotropic meds, without my knowledge or consent, She has missed going to school for months at a time, with no alternate schooling having been set into motion resulting in her educational goals in relation to her age,being off target by at least 3 years. CPS had braces put
I have grandchildren in foster care. I was told by NFC they would be placed in my home when I follow their instructions. I did everything I was told and the GAL refuted the recommendations of the agency in court. The judge sided with the GAL and the lies of the CPS worker whose name is on an "Unfounded" report dated months earlier. In the foster home, my granddaughters' hair was not washed or combed for 7 weeks and my grandson said the foster parent kicked him. I was told by the caseworker to call the hotline. I called the hotline and my grandchildren are still in the same foster home. I also told the hotline that the girls had been in organized activities outside of the home and my grandson was to start T-ball this spring. The girls were allowed to start in a drill team for 2 weeks and removed as punishment for “acting up in the household”. My grandson who was 5 yrs old at the time was placed on psychotropic drugs. This tells me that the foster parent was aware of the call to the hotline. At this time none of my grandkids are in any structured activities. I am now allowed 1 supervised visit a month where I have been told not to speak of anything that is going on in the foster home. I feel they are being held hostage so as not to inform anyone of what is really going on within the foster home. CPS has now become legalized human trafficking and providing the "gateway drug" which is used to control children who resist the unnecessary removals from family.
My 2 year old and 4 year old were taken from me. They took my rights without any proof I neglected or abused them. they need stoped!!
They have truly hurt the children beyond words can express and destroyed the most important family bonds.

MY kids are 26, 23, 20! I am STILL fighting the SAME false allegations that were never supported by any type of colloberation, much less A PROPONDERANCE, except now its dealing with my 2 year old grandaughter I have literally had since the day she was born, 2 old reports made against me are raised and now include false statements added by editing the record that I have DUI and 3 child endangerment warrents currently active against me, FROM 1996!!!!! i have never been charged with either EVER IN MY LIFE I have submitted a true copy of my dmv record as well as paid to be fingerprinted and a criminal background ran on myself showing these are not true statements, the response? LOL, if they are active, then NO I would not have them on my record since I havent been arrested yet LOL and the DUI nevermind thats not a warrent but a traffic violation, immediately and permaenty on your driving record convicted or not.....the original complaint against me was alledgedly failiing to protect, however the legal standard is KNOWINGLY ALLOWED, which I did not know of the false allegations my ex husband raised until after they were made, and at no point NONE does CPS ever ask DID YOU TELL YOUR MOTHER, DID SHE KNOW, WHEN DID YOUR MOM KNOW HOW DID MOM FIND OUT, DID MOM SEE omg THESE PEOPLE, they seriously need stopped, they just do, we spend over 30K in lawyer fees for a custody dispute that spanned 2 decades, CPS investigations was a favorite delaying tactic to keep it dragging on and on and depleting our assests nevermind the havoc that was wreaked on our lives, thats immeasurable by any standard, what my own kids were subjected to being in the middle of their parents their entire childhood, literally 5/6 to present age actually. CPS WORKERS NEED THE COVER OF IMMUNITY STRIPPED, THEY ABSOLUTELY SHOULD BE AS EQUALLY ACCOUNTABLE FOR THE EMOTIONAL AND MENTAL ABUSE THEY INFLICT ON OUR CHILDREN AS AN ACTUALLY ABUSIVE PARENT, NO LESS. THEY NEED TO BE ACCOUNTABLE FOR CONDUCTING FALSE, HALF ASSED, INCOMPETENT AND OR INTENTIONALLY DAMAGING INVESTIGATIONS THEY CONDUCT BY THE THOUSANDS DAILY ON FAMILIES! MONETARILY LIABLE AS WELL AS PUNISHABLE BY THE VERY SAME CODES, LAWS POLICIES THEY DISREGARD EVERY SINGLE DAY!

CPS IS OUTRAGOUSELY OUT OF CONTROL

WHAT WILL IT TAKE BEFORE OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS, THESE POLICY MAKERS THESE LAW SCHOLARS, AND WHATEVER OTHER NECC POWER THAT BE TO STOP LISTEN LOOK, PAY ATTENTION TO THIS UNCONTROLLED FORCE OF DESTRUCTION TO GET A LEASH PUT AROUND ITS NECK....WHAT WILL IT TAKE?

OH, MAYBE JUST ONE OF THEIR OWN KIDS OR GRANCHILDREN, THEIR OWN FAMILY FALLING VICTIM TO WHAT WE THE PEPOLE WHO PUT THEIR ASSES IN POWER DEAL WITH DAILY......

The actions of the CPS are deplorable. I am confused as to why know one has stopped them. I have caught them in several lies, they are highly manipulative and deceitful. If you need help getting the word out, I would be happy to help.
Cps should not be allowed to maintain a shroud of secrecy where non custodial grandparents are concerned. They have a God complex when it comes to giving you any information, approving visits even with a perfect background check of a grandparent that has helped raise that child. This is def not in the best interest of the child and hurtful and damaging to the relationship. PLEASE conduct a congressional investigation into this rampant violation of rights and the impact this unspeakable emotional abusehas on our nations children. Broken hearted grandma:(
