Sorry, no etymologies found.
Just heard a woman on a bayarea station say that after 3 times of being bullied you can call cps on them.
The reconstructions are also done by two different statistical methods: "cps" and "eiv."
Drill hole MWNE-08-40 intersected a 66.1 metre core-length interval having radioactivity readings ranging from 300 counts per second ( "cps") to greater than 9,999 cps (off-scale).
"cps" method is "composite-plus-scaling," in which the available proxies are combined, then the composite is scaled to find the best match to the calibration data.
Will the cps take their children because they are considered a child molesterr?

Whilst I dont agree with the sentiment, I can see why this attitude may exist, and how with the public perception that crime is going largely unpunished (cps – not arrests) I can see that young wayne being roughed up a bit might not cause the public outcry it did 10 years ago. on September 9, 2009 at 9: 49 pm Bobdaz
The government, the cps, the courts CANNOT roll the clock back 15-20 years no matter how much we all want them to because that would mean total admission of faliure which will never, ever happen.
I cannot believe that the cps lets these clowns daily walk free, every time they walk away from court they get licence to take it further and further.
The government forced it on us to stop sending so many to court, the cps use it to get a judicial disposal without ever having to fight a case at trial.
