The change comes on the heels of a pair of federal court opinions that said case workers must abide by a constitutional amendment that guarantees people the right against searches and seizures without a warrant.
The move has received criticism from child advocates and juvenile judges, who say the safety of children is already being affected.
Before the court ruling, case workers and their supervisors could decide on their own whether to remove a child, but had to petition a court to review their actions within 72 hours. The federal court found that practice was unconstitutional.
