Child Rescue Unit

The primary objective of this unit is to assist Human Services - Child Protective Services (CPS) caseworkers in locating children who have been deemed by the Wayne County Circuit Court Family Division to be at extreme risk of serious neglect or abuse by their caregivers.  The Child Rescue Unit enforces court orders by removing these children from the custody of their parents or caregivers and placing them with Child Protective Services.  The squad has recovered children from highly dangerous locations including suspected drug dens and abandoned homes where other runaways, gang members and transients were known to congregate.
