CPS Did You Know?

Did You Know...A report made that describes the same incident(s), involing the same subjects and child(ren), occurring within the same time frame as a previously made report, and that does not include any new allegations, is considered a duplicate report. Duplicate reports are usually made by different reporters. This type of report displays on the Assigned Workload with the label "DUP" in the Type column.

Duplicate reports are merged with the original case by the SCR and thereby receive the same Case ID number as that of the original report. Unlike an initial or subsequent report, a duplicate report is not progressed to an investigation in CONNECTIONS. A duplicate intake stage is closed, using the Intake/Priority Closure window, after it has been accepted and received by the local district.
