Facilitating the Intervention, Assessment and Investigation of Child Abuse

The Child Abuse Multidisciplinary Intervention (CAMI) Account is the primary source of state funding for the intervention, assessment and investigation of child abuse.

State law requires CAMI funds be distributed through multidisciplinary teams (MDTs). MDTs are established in each county under the leadership of the local district attorney. CAMI funds are also distributed directly to five non-profit child abuse intervention centers to provide specialized regional assistance to the MDTs.

For more information about these organizations, please see CAMI Regional Children’s Advocacy Centers ».

Karly’s Law

Karly’s Law was enacted in 2008 to improve the way that MDTs conduct investigations for physical abuse. At the root of Karly’s Law is the mandate that investigators identify suspicious physical injuries and then respond with specific medical referrals.

Today, children with suspicious physical injuries must be referred to a Designated Medical Professional (DMP) trained to recognize child abuse.
