L.A. County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas, responding to the deaths of children who passed through the county’s child welfare system, on Monday renewed his call to update the computer system designed to provide child abuse investigators with information about a child’s jeopardy.

The Times reported Sunday that county’s system for sharing information about suspicious injuries, domestic violence and other key risk factors was among the unfinished reform efforts. The system has been repeatedly cited over the years as insufficient, and its shortcomings have played a critical role in numerous child deaths and abuse cases.

“Technology may not be a cure, but it is part of the treatment,” Ridley-Thomas said in a statement that also acknowledged the role of deep poverty, high social worker caseloads and multigenerational patterns of abuse.

“We must give the protectors of minors in the county’s custody or care [the] adequate tools for their mission to safeguard children,” he said. “We wouldn’t think of sending soldiers to war carrying jammed rifles; we can’t go on asking social workers to use an incomplete children’s data network just because it’s what we now have.”
