TARGET POPULATION: ALL OFFENDERS. Classes are divided into three separate segments; juvenile offenders, adult offenders and at risk youth. BTCT is suitable for all risky behavior offenders as a high-impact, graphic illustration of the potential consequences of their conduct. Although graphic, the content is meant to give a very realistic example of the consequences offenders before them have suffered.
Beyond the Caution Tape is open to any juvenile or adult using or influenced by drugs, hanging out with the “wrong crowd” or exhibiting any “at risk” behavior and may provide the ultimate opportunity to offer a “wakeup call” to those that may need a change of direction.
The purpose of the program is to create an educational experience for participants. Seeing the photos of a person whose death was caused by violence, alcoholism, accident or drug overdose is a valuable and sobering event, particularly for those individuals who are addicts or have encountered the harsh realities of addiction.
The class spans a 2 hour period and includes a viewing of stored bodies at the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office. All juvenile participants are required to have a consent form signed by a parent or legal guardian.
