NASHVILLE (AP) – The Department of Children's Services is reorganizing following problems that led to the recent resignation of Commissioner Kate O'Day.

One of the biggest changes includes teaming with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation to better train child abuse investigators.

Interim Commissioner Jim Henry said Monday that district attorneys sometimes are unwilling to prosecute a case because of problems with the investigation.

Henry also said DCS is moving forward with a new process for reviewing child deaths that officials hope will be a "gold standard" for the nation.

DCS came under fire last year for not knowing how many children had died while in its custody or after an investigation of possible abuse or neglect.
