All reports of alleged child abuse or neglect shall be responded to by KCWS staff, and investigated in coordination with other appropriate investigatory agencies including law enforcement in a manner that proves to be timely and diligent unless the Tribal Court directs otherwise. If necessary, the KCWS staff may immediately remove a child if there exists risk of physical harm to a child. An emergency removal order must be first obtained by the Court unless the emergency circumstances are such that the delay in obtaining such an order would likely result in serious harm to the child. For such orders, the Court must make a determination that remaining in the home is contrary to the child’s welfare. [Res. 22-R-037, 2/24/2022; Res. 09-R-062 Title 1 § (13)(A), 4/30/2009.
