There are 2 programs that comprise the department's post-adjudication services-the Progressive Re-Sanctioning Program (P.R.P.) and the Court Ordered Residential Program and Services (C.O.R.P.S.).
Progressive Re-Sanctioning Program
The P.R.P. is an effort by the Juvenile Probation Department to provide more effective monitoring of juveniles who violate the conditions of their delinquent probation. At a court hearing the Juvenile Judge may change the conditions of probation to include that the juvenile be placed in the P.R.P. residential boot camp for 3 to 5 months. While in the P.R.P. the juvenile will participate in family and individual counseling, life skills development, physical training, discipline, community service and academics.
Court Ordered Residential Program & Services
The C.O.R.P.S. is a residential program for juveniles who have been unsuccessful in traditional probation supervision programs and those juveniles prone to develop a pattern of delinquency. The program assists the juvenile to break his delinquent behavior patterns by mixing principles of therapy, regimentation, mentoring and social work. The juvenile participates in family, group and individual counseling, life skills development, physical training, drill and ceremony, community service and academics for 6 to 12 months. A wraparound program eases the juveniles' transition back into the home, school and community.
The Waco Independent School District provides the year round educational services for both of these residential programs.
Visitation is scheduled for Thursday evenings and is limited to parents/guardians.
