Forensic Assessment Center Network

FACN web application developed by SunNet Solutions.

The Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) established The Forensic Assessment Center Network (FACN). The FACN makes medical expertise available to Children’s Protective Services (CPS) investigators working in underserved areas of the state, and to those handling difficult cases where an additional expert medical opinion is desired.

The FACN is managed by the University of Texas Health Science Center-Houston, Texas who in turn contracts with UT Health Science Center San Antonio, UT Medical Branch at Galveston, UT Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas, Texas Tech University, and Texas A&M University. As of December, 2015, FACN physicians had served over 20,000 children from 158 counties.
