Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2006, $249,392)

The Comprehensive Approaches to Sex Offender Management (CASOM) Grant Program is authorized under Title IV of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, Pub. L. No. 103-322, 42 U.S.C. 13941. The CASOM grants are awarded to state, local, and tribal jurisdictions to develop or enhance sex offender management practices for offenders under community supervision. The Office of Justice Programs awards implementation and enhancement grants. Implementation and Enhancement grants are intended to assist jurisdictions to either implement strategic plans already developed or to enhance existing sex offender management strategies.

Bexar County Juvenile Probation will use the CASOM grant to improve Bexar County's juvenile sex offender management policies and practices by: critically examining existing approaches; identifying gaps and areas of need; and developing and implementing specific corresponding strategies. The definitive approach will be driven by the principles of effective juvenile sex offender management, including: prioritization of and sensitivity to victim impact; utilization of specialized knowledge; education and involvement of the public; assurance of integrity through on-going monitoring and evaluation; and multidisciplinary collaboration.
