What about confidentiality and information sharing?
The unique centralization of the multidisciplinary agencies allows the team to share information, coordinate their services and streamline the investigative process.

However, as every case is an open child abuse investigation, confidentiality is a primary concern. Each agency signs an inter-agency agreement that permits the agency to share information with other team members.

Case information is not released to anyone other than team agencies unless by court order. The CAC's administrative staff does not acknowledge inquiries about scheduled appointments or whether a child has been seen or not. The CAC refers all such requests to the case investigators.
