DOES YOUR CITY HAVE A JUVENILE CASE MANAGER?
The Texas Municipal Courts Education Center (TMCEC) has asked that the League provide the following notice to cities with a juvenile case manager:
Not later than December 1, 2011, the governing body of a governmental entity that employs a juvenile case manager (JCM) under Article 45.056, Code of Criminal Procedure, is required to adopt minimum training and education standards for juvenile case managers. TMCEC has created a web page to help cities comply with this requirement. Go to http://www.tmcec.com/Resources/JCM-SB61 where you will find a sample resolution, model code of ethics, explanations as to the possible meaning of the training and educational standards set forth in S.B. 61, and more.
