Child Protection Ombudsman

The Office of Child Protection Ombudsman (OCPO) was established by the Utah State Legislature to help the Department of Human Services (DHS) resolve concerns about the protection of children who are receiving services from the Division of Child and Family Services (DCFS).

The purpose of OCPO is to receive and investigate complaints to ensure that proper services are provided by DCFS.
