The Center for Sex Offender Management’s primary goal is to enhance public safety by preventing further victimization through improving the management of sex offenders in the community. CSOM provides the most current information and effective practices to those responsible for managing sex offenders; captures lessons from communities around the country who have demonstrated — through collaboration between criminal justice and health system agencies — that they can manage sex offenders and increase public safety; disseminates those lessons; and provides the opportunity for other jurisdictions to draw upon these experiences, enhance their practices, and create similar results by offering a variety of technical assistance opportunities.
STOP IT NOW!, a national nonprofit organization, created a ground-breaking public health approach to prevent the perpetration of child sexual abuse. Since 1992, Stop It Now!’s public policy, public education, and research programs have protected our children by emphasizing adult and community responsibility. These programs reach out to adults who are concerned about inappropriate sexualized behavior in another adult, adolescent, or child, and to adults who are concerned about their own thoughts or behaviors. Stop It Now! established the first helpline (1-888-PREVENT) available for individuals and families to call for support and access to resources in a confidential setting.
