DHHS Warns Public About Woman Posing As Child Protective Services Employee

OMAHA- The Department of Health and Human Services is warning the public about a woman who reportedly posed as a child protective services employee to try to gain access to homes.

The department says it has received three such reports from Omaha and one from Holdrege in the last two weeks. The department says the woman wasn’t allowed into the homes because she couldn’t provide identification.

The department says anyone unsure about the identity of a person who claims to be an employee should report their concern to the Adult and Child Abuse Neglect Hotline.
