Thousands of children live under state custody and a North Pole Legislator says she has heard hundreds of complaints against the office overseeing them. Representative Tammie Wilson believes the complaints are symptoms of systemic problems within the Office of Children’s Services. She is collecting evidence to justify a potential grand jury investigation into the department. KBBI’s Quinton Chandler reports a foster child advocate agrees the system is plagued with problems but she isn’t convinced an investigation will make a difference.
