A team from the Department of the Army’s Office of the Inspector General completed an investigation of the Fort Hood Child, Youth and School Services last week, part of an Armywide investigation.

The Pentagon is reviewing hiring procedures at military day care centers, schools, youth centers and other facilities where children are present, after revelations that some employees at a day care center at Fort Myer, Va., had criminal records, according to The Associated Press.

Reports of abuse at the day care made headlines nationwide in December.

A Fort Hood official said the inspection team conducted its investigation of local facilities last week.

“It was part of a regularly scheduled annual inspection,” Fort Hood spokesman Christopher Haug said in an email after the Killeen Daily Herald requested information about the inspection.

It’s unclear if the inspector general team found any discrepancies at Fort Hood facilities.

“As you can understand the IG doesn’t talk results publicly,” Haug said in the email.
