Citizen Review Panels (CRP) are groups of volunteer citizens throughout the nation who are federally mandated to provide an evaluation of their State’s child protective services system. In Kentucky, there are active CRPs in the Southern Bluegrass and Jefferson regions of the Department for Community Based Services, as well as a Statewide CRP composed of members from all nine regions.

The mission of Kentucky’s Citizen Review Panels is to involve the larger community in evaluating the practices and policy of the Department for Community Based Services.  Ultimately, our goal is to improve the lives of every child and family in the Commonwealth.
