FSMDTs consist of professionals from prosecution (i.e., District Attorney), law enforcement, Child Welfare Services (Oklahoma Department of Human Services), medicine, mental health, domestic violence (recommended), and other related fields that promote coordination and teamwork needed to ensure a timely and appropriate response to investigations of child maltreatment. FSMDTs conduct formalized case reviews that allow team members to immediately share information and eliminate duplicate efforts.
