CAMDEN, N.J. — The Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People which was promulgated by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, requires that dioceses provide safe environment training for all adults in regular contact with minors. In the Diocese of Camden, NJ Child Assault Prevention (CAP) is the safe environment program for all adults and for the children who attend our elementary schools.
Since 2004, over 12,000 adults in the Diocese of Camden have received CAP training. CAP teaches attendees how to recognize child abuse and neglect and how to properly inform authorities when suspicion of abuse is occurring. CAP teaches that children have the right to be “safe, strong and free.”
The diocesan policy is that adults will attend CAP once every five years. While CAP 1 will continue to be offered, the Office of Safe Environment for Children, Youth and Adults announces a second CAP workshop. CAP 2 will be for adults who attended CAP 1 five years ago and are required to attend again.
CAP 2 is called “No More Bullies, No More Victims.” It is a workshop on bullying recognition and prevention. Full story.
