What is a safety plan and when is it used?

By Laura Schantz

A safety plan is when Family Services comes to us, case is done, and they determine, for instance, you can have your children in your home but your partner cannot be around them or your partner cannot ever be left alone with them but can be around them supervised. Different safety plans are just ways to make children safe, and Family Services tries to get the parent to sometimes voluntarily agree to a safety plan. If there is a case that is actually filed against that parent, then Family Services will require that they sign the safety plan, which can have all sorts of different things on it like, you won’t use physical discipline on your children, you won’t drink around your children, you won’t have the children around certain people – all sorts of different things depending on what the allegations were.
