Thank you for your interest in the Region 7 Citizen Review Panel (R7 CRP) that is administered by Eastern Idaho Public Health. The R7 CRP serves Bingham, Bonneville, Clark, Custer, Fremont, Jefferson, Lemhi, Madison, and Teton Counties. 

In 1995, the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare organized Citizen Review Panels in each of its seven regions to examine how Idaho’s Child Protection System worked and to make recommendations for improving the system. In 2018, the Idaho Legislature amended Idaho Code to transition oversight of the Citizen Review Panels to Idaho’s seven local public health districts. The Citizen Review Panels are comprised of up to seven volunteers that reside within the boundaries of the public health district. Each Citizen Review Panel is tasked with reviewing all cases brought under the child protective act that have been open in the corresponding district court, or other appropriate local jurisdiction, longer than 120 days.

Citizen Review Panel

We are seeking people from all walks of life with varying levels of experience to create a diverse panel of volunteers with an interest in the welfare of children and families and a strong motivation to improve the lives of children. Participation on the Citizen Review Panel will require individuals with an ability to maintain confidentiality and cope with sensitive and emotional cases. The application process includes an interview, reference checks, and a criminal history background check (paid for by Eastern Idaho Public Health). Once selected, a panel member is required to sign a confidentiality agreement with the Idaho Department of Health & Welfare. 

Service as a R7 CPR member will require you to commit to a two-year term, attend a mandatory Citizen Review Panel training (16 hours in length), attend monthly meetings (4 hours in length), conduct chart reviews outside of monthly meetings (time varies from 1-4 hours per case), and participate in ongoing annual training.

If you are interested in applying to serve as a member of the Region 7 Citizen Review Panel, please submit your application by mail using our main Idaho Falls office, or by contacting Holly Whitworth below.
