A new report shows that Georgia's child protection agency has identified serious problems in how the agency investigates reports of child abuse and neglect.

The agency is acknowledging "significant gaps" in its performance, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported (bit.ly/241l0Hx).

The admission appears in a new report analyzing deaths in 2014 of children whose families had histories with the Division of Family and Children Services, or DFCS, the newspaper reported.
