Judge Jose “Pepe” Salinas found a lack of resources to adequately deter juveniles from entering the court for truancy and other forms of misconduct and assist their families in finding the necessary resources to adequately assist with prevention and diversion services. In 2015, Honorable Judge Jose R. Salinas successfully applied and was awarded funds for the first and only Juvenile Case Manager in Webb County. The Office of the Governors Criminal Justice Division grant allowed for the full time employment of a Juvenile Case Manager. Obtaining this grant allowed the Judge to service these under – served youth to focus on building long lasting oriented programs for the youth in pct. 4. The T.R.I.P. PROGRAM was made possible through state grant and has been administered in the court since 2017. This program allows our court to work and identify with juveniles who are at risk by working together with several participating agencies. The program allows for the students and Juvenile Case Manager to give back to the community by conducting educational sessions and community service for residents in Pct. 4. The REAL MISSION program was established in 2010 and has been instrumental to work with several partnering agencies. This program allows for Pct. 4 students to interact and give back to the community by complying with Truancy Court requirements made possible through partnering agencies. Judge Jose "Pepe" Salinas is dedicated to serve the people of Precinct 4 and supports all residents of Webb County. His experience, coupled with an open door policy and accountability, bringing the best to Webb County.
