Staff workers with the Department of Child and Family Services are taking their frustrations to the street.

Staff workers in and around Rockford pounded the sidewalk in front of the Zeke Giorgi Center hoping to make the staffing crisis in DCFS known to legislators and the governor.

Right now, they say caseloads are rising while staffing is dropping and safety for the kids involved is the greatest concern.

Garman says that even with the department's intensive training program, any new hires Wednesday wouldn't even be on the job for another several weeks.
