Multidisciplinary Team (MDT)

The MDT is a group of diverse agencies consisting of Laredo Police Department, Webb and Zapata County Sheriffs’ Departments, Laredo Independent School District Police Department, United Independent School District Police Department, Webb and Zapata District Attorney’s Office, Webb and Zapata County Attorney’s Office, Child Protective Services, and CAC staff.

On a weekly basis, the MDT reviews cases of children who have been allegedly abused. Discussions of these cases are held to determine if there is enough evidence to pursue prosecution against the alleged perpetrator and/or to assure that all relevant services are being provided to the child victim and the non-offending family members. The MDT plays a vital role in bringing cases to justice and in providing the child and the family with a full array of services designed to facilitate the healing process.
