Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1976 
54 p. 

Presented are the findings of a study conducted to evaluate two community protective service systems in terms of the mechanisms for identifying and handling child abuse and neglect cases and the effectiveness of intervention. It is noted that data was collected in two sites: Site I (Nashville, Tennessee), which has an emergency reporting system and a 24-hour protective service program; and Site II (Savannah, Georgia), which has a more traditional protective service system with no internal provision for 24-hour intake within the public welfare system. The first three chapters cover an introduction to protective services, the definition and major elements of service systems, and methodology of the study (including background of the research project, general objectives, research design, evaluation criteria, and limitations). Two chapters report on the findings regarding each site in terms of its relationship to collateral systems, systems operations, and observed problems. Provided in a final chapter are a discussion of the similarities and differences between the two systems in terms of system structure, a comparative evaluation of the systems' functions, a summary of major insights, and a presentation of recommendations (such as that intake into the mandated protective service system be provided on a 24-hour basis).
