Team Approach

                  The Sumner County Child Protective Investigative Team (CPIT) is coordinated through Ashley’s Place and helps facilitate the multi-disciplinary approach to intervention, investigation, prosecution, treatment and prevention of abuse.  Child abuse is a community problem and no single agency has the necessary skills, knowledge and resources to provide the assistance needed by abused children and their families.             


The mission of CPIT is to work together through a collaborative, inter-agency approach to ensure the best possible outcomes for child victims.
