DCS Promises Swift, Deliberate Fixes

Officials now heading up the Tennessee Department of Children’s Services (DCS) say they’re seeking swift, but deliberate solutions to problems that have plagued the agency -- though they still are not able to give a definitive answer about how many children who have come into contact with DCS have died. Interim Commissioner Jim Henry told The Tennessean that the agency’s $27 million computer system appears to be improving as glitches are found and fixed. Larry Martin, a longtime aide to Gov. Bill Haslam, also is on board and promises to deal with whatever problems are found. The Memphis Daily News has the story.
