RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

Mayor Dwight Jones will make an announcement regarding the city's Department of Social Services, Monday.

Sources tell NBC12 Mayor Jones will announce a new leader for the problem-plagued agency. NBC12 broke the story when the interim head, who was put in place after accusations children were being left in dangerous situations, left for a state job.

At the same time, sources also say child protective services case workers were called into an emergency meeting Friday morning, where they were told they were out of compliance with safety standards and benchmarks they are supposed to meet. This was the second meeting in as many days called at the last minute, according to insiders.
