What is The Citizen Review Panel?
The Citizen Review Panel (CRP) is an independent group of Boulder County citizens who review complaints regarding unresponsiveness or unprofessional conduct by Boulder County Housing and Human Services’ Family and Children Services employees. Panel members are appointed by Boulder County Commissioners. No employees of the Boulder County Department of Housing and Human Services or the Colorado Department of Human Services are on the panel.
A Final Note
It is important to remember that this process is for complaints about Boulder County Department of Housing and Human Services employee conduct only. This process does not change any civil or criminal investigation or court action. For example, recommendations can not be made by the Citizen’s Review Panel regarding:
- Substantiation of abuse or neglect
- TRAILS Documentation
- Filing of Dependency/Neglect petitions or criminal charges
- Treatment planning for a child or family
- Custody, placement or visitation regarding a child
