11166.3.  (a) The Legislature intends that in each county the law
enforcement agencies and the county welfare or probation department
shall develop and implement cooperative arrangements in order to
coordinate existing duties in connection with the investigation of
suspected child abuse or neglect cases. The local law enforcement
agency having jurisdiction over a case reported under Section 11166
shall report to the county welfare or probation department that it is
investigating the case within 36 hours after starting its
investigation. The county welfare department or probation department
shall, in cases where a minor is a victim of actions specified in
Section 288 of this code and a petition has been filed pursuant to
Section 300 of the Welfare and Institutions Code with regard to the
minor, evaluate what action or actions would be in the best interest
of the child victim. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the
county welfare department or probation department shall submit in
writing its findings and the reasons therefor to the district
attorney on or before the completion of the investigation. The
written findings and the reasons therefor shall be delivered or made
accessible to the defendant or his or her counsel in the manner
specified in Section 859.
   (b) The local law enforcement agency having jurisdiction over a
case reported under Section 11166 shall report to the district office
of the State Department of Social Services any case reported under
this section if the case involves a facility specified in paragraph
(5) or (6) of subdivision (a) of Section 1502, Section 1596.750 or
1596.76 of the Health and Safety Code, and the licensing of the
facility has not been delegated to a county agency. The law
enforcement agency shall send a copy of its investigation report and
any other pertinent materials to the licensing agency upon the
request of the licensing agency.
