My Name was Placed on CACI in San Diego. What Should I Do Next?

By: Wallin & Klarich

CACI hearingThe California Child Abuse Central Index (CACI) is a tool created by the California Legislature to protect the health and safety of children. CACI is a list consisting of names of people who have been investigated or charged with child abuse. The primary purpose of CACI is to permit specified government agencies to locate prior reports detailing investigations of known or suspected child abuse or severe neglect.

Every law enforcement agency, probation department, social services, and some other government agencies must report to the Department of Justice every incident of suspected child abuse or sever neglect for which the agency conducts an investigation, and for which it determines that the allegations of child abuse or severe neglect are either substantiated or inconclusive. Such reports detail the investigation of alleged physical abuse, sexual abuse, mental or emotional abuse, severe neglect, willful child endangerment, unlawful corporal punishment, or death of a child.

It is extremely important to request a grievance hearing in order to remove an individual’s name from CACI. The individual’s personal information may remain on CACI for 10 years or longer, and it is shared by many agencies, which may affect your ability to secure employment with a state or a local government. If you seek to remove your name from CACI, you will need to contact an experienced family law attorney who will vigorously represent you at a grievance hearing.
