Child Fatality Review Team

Child Fatality Review Team was established in Maryland by Senate Bill 464 of 1999. The portion of the law relevant to Child Fatality Review Team is contained in the Maryland Code in Article Health-General, Subtitle 7. The law requires that each County establish a multi-disciplinary, multi-agency team review of individual cases of child deaths. The ultimate purpose of the review process is to understand the circumstances around those deaths and to influence policies and programs to improve child health, safety and protection, and to prevent future child deaths.

Meetings

The Baltimore County Child Fatality Review Team schedules meetings on the last Tuesday of every month from 9 to 10:30 a.m., in the conference room of the Office of the State’s Attorney, located on the 5th floor of the Circuit Courts Building, 401 Bosley Avenue, Towson, Maryland 21204. 

*Please note–due to the confidential nature of the individual child death reviews, the portion of the meeting designated for the purpose of case reviews will be closed to the public. Scheduled meetings may be canceled due to inclement weather or if no new referrals for case review have been received during the month. View the agendas and minutes from the open portion of the CFR Team meetings on this website.

Board Members

The law stipulates the local child fatality team membership be drawn from particular County agencies, organizations and areas of expertise, when available. A number of those recommended positions are filled by invitation or assigned by agency heads with other positions appointed by the County Health Officer.
