History[edit] Los Angeles County Social Services began their origin in the Office of Superintendent of Children's and Women's Work, formed in 1891, to care for destitute women and their children under the guidelines of the 1851 Poor Law.[1] The Department of Charities was formed in 1913 and included five Divisions: County Hospital, County Farm, Outdoor Relief, Olive View Sanatorium, and Cemetery Divisions.[1] By statute enacted in 1903, California's first juvenile court had jurisdiction over dependent, neglected and delinquent children.[2] The Division of Outdoor Relief was expanded and renamed in 1938, the Bureau of Indigent Relief, and in 1943 changed again to the Bureau of Public Assistance. In 1966, the Bureau of Public Assistance became the Department of Public Social Services (DPSS).[3] In 1984, after public discussion and hearings, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors created both the Department of Children Services and the Commission for Children's Services.[4] In 1994, the Board changed the name to the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS).[1]

Notable investigations[edit] According to reports DCFS had investigated Michael Jackson beginning in 1993 with a sexual abuse allegation and again in 2003. Reports show the LAPD and DCFS did not find credible evidence of abuse or sexual misconduct.[5][6]
