Child & Family Services Director Returns To Duty

January 25, 2019 | 8 Comments

After what they said was a “thorough investigation,” the Ministry of Legal Affairs today [Jan 25] announced that Alfred Maybury “will return to his post as the Director of The Department of Child and Family Services and is no longer on administrative leave.”

According to a Ministry spokesperson, “The investigation revealed there was no misconduct by the Director. Mr. Maybury has been asked to return to his post on Monday, 28 January, 2019.

“The investigation involved a series of interviews with staff members, a detailed review of the department’s practices and procedures, and a review of the financial activities within the Department.”

“The Ministry placed Mr. Maybury on paid administrative leave on 23 August, 2018, after allegations from an external party stated that Mr. Maybury had not performed his role in accordance with the Ministry’s policies and procedures as they relate to the care and safety of children in Residential Treatment Services [RTS] and he did not follow Financial Instructions. These claims leveled against the Director were not substantiated.”

The Ministry spokesperson concluded, “The review found weaknesses in some of the operations at RTS, and these are currently being corrected. Steps will always be taken to ensure that the care, welfare and wellbeing of the children is addressed with sensitivity and respect.”

  5. Time Shall Tell says:

    So after an unsubstantiated allegation was made a thorough investigation was carried out. An investigation involving a series of interviews with staff members, a detailed review of the department’s practices and procedures, and a review of the financial activities within the Department. After this investigation, it was determined that Mr. Maybury acted within the normal operations of his role but that the these previously accepted operation procedures shall be addressed & “corrected”. So really it seems the only optional outcome to this would have been to offer him back his position. So the moral of the story is if you’re going to lay allegations against someone then make sure you can back up your allegations & know for a fact that wrongdoing has occurred rather than basing it solely on opinion & feelings.

  6. Another smash to the people that voted them in. Sure glad I did not vot them in I would feel disgusted every day. They can do whatever they like and the fools will still vot for them. Un flippin believable. Where is Tweed I need to have him speak to his people.

  7. Good for you, Mr. Maybury.
    An Inquiry should have been done on the OBA who allowed a social counsellor to work for a lengthy period of time, WITHOUT PAY!!

    They have looked in the running of the child and family services,now someone should check the seniors homes,i
    have heard some horror stories,they charge $5000 to
    $7000 per month,and the family has to take soap, lotion,
    or whatever they need,thats not right,some staff are
    not nice to the patients,thats why they walk out if they
    get a chance,when someone finds them and takes them back
    the staff would say I did not know they were gone,what
    a shame.
