The Division of Child Protection and Permanency ( formerly known as DYFS) is the New Jersey agency designed to protect the safety and welfare of children. The agency is responsible for investigating domestic abuse and neglect accusations.   The agency can act on the tip of “anonymous” persons.  These anonymous persons may be someone with a personal grudge or people in positions of authority, such as teachers, nurses, and other individuals who by the nature of their jobs must report anything that leads them to believe a child is being abused or neglected.  There are many instances when children are removed from their parents based on false accusations or incorrect information.  While DCPP cannot make an arrest, it can report any evidence to the prosecutor’s office which could lead to even more dire consequences for you and your family.  The involvement of the Division in your lives can be the single most traumatic event in your lives.
