A newly-launched investigative unit at the Department of Economic Security focusing on the state's worst cases of child abuse and neglect has a new chief.
Detective Gregory McKay has been named to head the Office of Child Welfare Investigations.
McKay joins DES through a partnership between the agency and the Phoenix Police Department, where he has worked for the past 17 years. There, he worked as a homicide detective and investigator for crimes against children.
McKay will oversee 29 staff members. The new office will coordinate with statewide local law enforcement and Child Protective Services case managers on cases of severe child abuse and/or neglect from which criminal allegations or charges may arise.
The Office of Child Welfare Investigations was authorized by the passage of HB 2721 in the last legislative session and will go into effect on Dec. 31, 2012.
