The new position of inspector general of Nebraska child welfare has been filled.
A news release from the Legislature's Health and Human Services Committee says Julie Rogers has been selected for the position, which was authorized by a measure approved this past session.
Under the measure, the inspector general has jurisdiction to investigate state and private agencies that serve children as a part of the state's child welfare system.
The position is affiliated with the Nebraska Ombudsman's Office and so is part of the legislative branch.
Rogers, who has a law degree, currently is community planning coordinator for the Juvenile Justice Institute at the University of Nebraska at Omaha.
She begins her duties on July 23.
