Intervention Strategies

Truancy Sweeps

Truancy Sweeps are conducted frequently with the participation of the school officials, the Sheriffs Department, District Attorney and PRYDE counselors.  This action is based on the critical nexus that exists between early truancy and later criminal activity.  On sweeps, reasons for excessive truancy are often discovered and remedies sought.  Students and parents are reminded of the value of education and made aware of the criminal consequences they face being in violation of truancy.   

Curfew Sweeps

Periodic Curfew Sweeps are conducted in San Juan Capistrano.  Research indicates that curfew violators have a high propensity to join or be a victim of gang activity.  Offenders and their parents were offered counseling and assistance.

Strike Teams

“Strike Teams”are the most significant intervention activity undertaken by GRIP.  Participating in the Strike Team are teachers, school administrators, counselors, County Probation and/or Social Services staff, and Sheriff and District Attorney staff members.  The team identifies at-risk students based on truancy, poor grades, significant discipline problems, and behavioral violations that appear gang related.  The students are evaluated with their parents present in order to create an intervention plan with counseling and regular follow-up meetings.  The plan develops both short and long term goals, and strategies are developed to promote pro-social improvements.
