Safeguarding Children of Arrested Parents Pre-arrest/Arrest Checklist

Arresting parents of children can, and often do, have significant and lasting negative effects on children, whether they witness the arrest or not. The IACP’s Safeguarding Children of Arrested Parents Pre-arrest/Arrest Checklist provides strategies to lessen the potential harmful effects of parental arrest on children and youth.
