Annotation: This final report describes the methodology and findings of the 2002 Survey of Agency Personnel from a national evaluation of the Safe Kids/Safe Streets program, examining the planning and implementation at the SK/SS sites.
Abstract: Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs (OJP), the Safe Kids/Safe Streets (SK/SS) program which began in 1997 is designed to break the cycle of child abuse and neglect and the development of juvenile delinquency by funding community collaboratives. Five localities within five States implemented the SK/SS program: Alabama, Missouri, Ohio, Vermont, and Michigan. A four-volume final report describes the results of a national evaluation of SK/SS conducted by Westat. This report, volume IV, describes a survey (Survey of Agency Personnel) designed to determine how supervisory and frontline staff in agencies view the child protection system, the different agencies involved in the system, and their role in the system. In addition, the survey set out to determine whether changes initiated by the projects in concert with agency directors or administrators were affecting lower level staff in the different agencies. The survey was conducted in 2002, close to 6 years after the initial SK/SS awards were made. The findings from the survey reveal some individual, agency, and community level changes in the child protection system at the different SK/SS sites. Overall, the findings from the survey reveal some individual, agency, and community level changes in the child protection system at the different SK/SS sites. Tables and appendixes A-C
