Training is available for persons who are interested in becoming approved chaperones for family members or friends who are not allowed unsupervised contact with minors. The chaperone is an individual identified as providing supervision for a sexual offender when he/she is in the presence of a minor child. The training program provides general information about sexual offenders and the dynamics of sexual offending, as well as specific information about the individual who is to be chaperoned. The participants learn about the rules and laws regarding appropriate/healthy and criminal sexual conduct. They gain an understanding of cognitive distortions, offender techniques for grooming victims, the concepts of "red flags", at-risk situations, reoffense prevention plans and probation agreements. Those who successfully complete the chaperone program will understand how to effectively monitor the offender's compliance with all conditions of probation regarding supervised contact with minors.
