Prosecutorial Diversion Program

This program identifies individuals detained in local jails with misdemeanor, non-violent felony, and some violent felony charges, with behavioral health conditions or developmental disabilities related to their crime, and for whom a question of competency was raised (the capacity to understand the nature of the proceedings against him or her to assist in his or her own defense). The identified individuals who do not have exclusionary violent or sex offenses and who consent to participate in the program for up to one year are diverted into the program. Program-assigned care coordinators help participant’s access community behavioral health services and other resources. The program goals include providing intensive care coordination which facilitates access to needed mental health, substance use, or developmental disability treatment and services, while building community supports to reduce criminal justice system encounters and orders for competency services. “The core belief of the program is that by offering life-enhancing services, rather than disciplinary action, participants will be given the best chance of success for improving their lives, [while] at the same time maintaining accountability”.
