Part of POSSE’s functionality is the “NCP Dangerous” indicator which can be found on the Case Maintenance Screen in POSSE. The “NCP Dangerous” indicator should be checked when a noncustodial parent is known to be dangerous. One example of this could be when a case worker becomes aware that an noncustodial parent has made threats toward the WCSP, or any of its employees.
When this box is checked, POSSE will automatically send a CSENet transaction to the other jurisdiction of the danger if the noncustodial parent is a participant in an intergovernmental case.
The following procedures shall be followed when marking the NCP Dangerous indicator:
A note shall be placed on the top line of the “Special Circumstances” box on Case Maintenance in POSSE. The note shall refer to a Case Activity Log discussing the specifics of why the parent should be viewed as dangerous, and shall include the date and initials of the note’s author.
The case worker shall copy the Special Circumstances note to all cases involving the dangerous NCP, referencing the POSSE Case Number where the threat is discussed in the Case Activity Log.
The case worker shall email the District Manager when a case manager believes the noncustodial parent is a threat referencing the POSSE Case Number where the threat is discussed in the Case Activity Log.
