Nashville, Tenn. - A series of problems within Tennessee's department of children's services has led to a re-organization of the agency.
The re-opening of DCS includes teaming with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation to better train child abuse investigators.
You may remember former Commissioner Kate O'Day resigned in early February for not knowing how many children had died while in DCS custody.
Interim commissioner, Jim Henry, says DCS is moving forward with a new process for reviewing child deaths that officials hope will be a "gold standard" for the nation.
