Citizens Review Panel
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, Two Rivers and Jefferson regions of the Department for Community Based Services, as well as a Statewide CRP composed of members from all nine regions.

Fayette County Public Schools - Handle With Care - Stakeholder Meeting
Southern Bluegrass CRP is piloting a program in conjunction with Fayette County Public Schools in an attempt to adopt the Handle With Care program that will increase lines of communication between community Law Enforcement agencies and Fayette County Public Schools. This communication will focus on youth in crisis in our community and attempt to match best resources for their care. The Stakeholder meeting was held on April 17th at 1:00PM at 1555 Georgetown Road (formerly IMANI Church) to discuss the Handle With Care program and how we can better serve youth in crisis throughout the community. Thanks.
