Child Placement Review (CPR) is a legislatively mandated judicial volunteer program in the Family Division. Boards are comprised of court-appointed citizen volunteers who monitor the cases of all children who are placed outside their homes by the Division of Youth and Family Services. Review Board members monitor the timeliness of case movement, examine case plans, and conduct in-person interviews of involved parties in order to provide judges with recommendations to assist in the critical decision-making process. (Boards are mandated to assess each case from the point of view of the best interest of the child.) The Board's recommendations embrace issues such as how the case is managed and how quickly the child achieves permanency. Review Board members are required to complete mandatory program-specific training.
