    DSS is the Dept of Social Services...The states child wellfare agency. DYS is the states juvenile justice agency. Is that just a typo??? Don't want people getting confused!

    DYS is part of Juvenile Corrections... DSS handles the youths not in custody of the justice system...

    Yea, exactly...DYS is basically the Juvenile version of the DOC. They have secure/residential facilities, an transportation dept., apprehension team, gang unit, and the Caseworkers are juvenile parole officers.

    And EMT is right, DSS takes care of child abuse, neglect, and wellfare cases, etc.

    Any D.Y.S. or juvenile justice questions will be responded to within my scope of knowledge. As this is a " law enforcement " site, I will only lend my working experience, and not pretend to be a police officer or an expert in the field of juvenile corrections. All inquires are welcome!

    There is some conversation about the DYS job on the other thread in this any of that within your scope of knowledge?

    to paraphrase

    DSS: bad parents
    DYS: bad kids

    What? You mean showing up to visit your child intoxicated isn't wrong??

    Or scheduling a visit with your kid the SAME time every week and NOT SHOWING UP without even calling isn't wrong??

    or showing up with one of your many boyfriends who coincidentally is also your child's abuser or that if you do show up making enough crazy promises that your kid can't handle himself untill the next time you drag yourself around here in 6 months........................................ I see we have something in common
