TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Gov. Jan Brewer announced plans today to form an independent child advocacy team called "CARE." It will oversee all CPS investigations.

The agency came under fire after 6,000 cases were not investigated. Soon after, critics started calling for Clarence Carter, the man who oversees CPS, to step down.

On Nov. 25, Carter released a two-step action plan to investigate the remaining cases. The first phase would assess and categorize about half of the outstanding cases which are from Jan. 1 through November 2013. The second phase includes the remaining cases from 2009 through January 2013.
