Changes at child protection after 2 deaths

WCAX - 9:09 am Mon Jun 23rd, 2014

Vermont state officials say they're making big changes at the Department for Children and Families in the aftermath of the death of two toddlers.

Vermont Agency of Human Services Secretary Douglas Racine and DCF Commissioner Dave Yacovone said Friday that the changes are designed to correct deficiencies discovered during the investigation into the deaths of 2-year-old Dezirae Sheldon, of Poultney and 15-month-old Peighton Geraw, of Winooski.

One change is in the leadership of the Rutland DCF office, which had been involved in Dezirae's case before her February death.
