Number of Child Protection Officers and Cases Each Officer Handles

Type: Parliamentary Questions


Mr Louis Ng Kok Kwang asked the Minister for Social and Family Development for each of the past five years (a) what is the number of Child Protection Service (CPS) officers; and (b) what is the mean and median number of cases that each CPS officer manages.


Over the last 5 years, the number of Child Protection Officers has increased by about 33%, to around 60 officers in 2022. Each officer handles about 40 cases at any point in time.
