BIPP is a class for family violence offenders in which offenders are held accountable for past abusive behavior and taught the fundamentals of leading healthy, nonviolent relationships. Our two BIPP locations work directly with offenders, both men and women, to enhance the safety of family violence victims and their children by challenging ingrained beliefs and entitlement. BIPP provides a designated criminal justice response to family violence; offenders are usually mandated to attend BIPP by a judge or CPS.
