18 week Battering Intervention & Prevention Program. Focusing Families BIPP is accredited and funded by Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ) - CJAD. BIPP classes consist of groups for family violence offenders, in which offenders are held accountable for past abusive behavior and taught the fundamentals of leading a nonviolent lifestyle. Although BIPPS work directly with offenders, the underlying goal of these programs is to enhance the safety of battered women and their children. Texas Legislators and family violence advocates worked together to form a system that establishes a method through which agencies working with family violence offenders must be accredited as operating in compliance with BIPP guidelines. The Texas Department of Criminal Justice-Community Justice Assistance Division (TDCJ-CJAD) is the governing agency for BIPP programs.
