|(a) We will intervene to provide for a child's immediate
or short-term safety when:
(1) The child is at risk of abuse or neglect in the
immediate or short-term future; and
(2) The child's family is unwilling or unable to protect
the child without intervention.
(b) When a child needs immediate or short-term protection
as specified in subsection (a) of this section, we must complete a
safety assessment, develop a plan to provide for the child's immediate
or short-term safety, and ensure that the plan is implemented. This
includes situations where the method of assuring the child's short-term
protection is to remove the alleged perpetrator from the home, either
voluntarily or by court order.
