Abuse/Neglect (3a) JUSTICE Code Manual

Abuse/Neglect (3a) JUSTICE Code Manual

In 2008, the Through the Eyes of the Child Initiative partnered with JUSTICE to produce a standardized code manual for data entry in abuse and neglect cases.  Clerks were trained in 2009, and technical assistance and individual training was provided by JUSTICE and TTEOC between 2012 and 2014.  The manual does not contain an exhaustive list of all codes that could potentially be entered in a 3a hearing but rather it focuses on codes commonly entered and specific focus is made on critical codes that are used to assess case progression, including: date of removal, ex parte order, Protective Custody Hearing, First Appearance Hearing, Adjudication Hearing, Disposition Hearing, Review Hearing, Permanency Hearing, Motion/Petition to TPR, TPR trial, and termination of jurisdiction.
