Legislator Seeks Investigation Of State Handling of Child Welfare Cases

State Representative Tammie Wilson has requested a grand jury investigation of the state Office of Children’s Services. The North Pole Republican sent letters to regional district attorney offices last week seeking the inquiry. As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, it’s based on concern about O.C.S. removal of an increasing number of kids from their parents.

Dan has been in public radio news in Alaska since 1993. He’s worked as a reporter, newscaster and talk show host at stations in McGrath, Valdez and Fairbanks. Dan’s experience includes coverage of a wide range of topics, from wolf control to the Trans-Alaska Pipeline and dog mushing.
