Pre-charge, pre-trial and deferred prosecution diversion programs allow eligible individuals accused of committing nonviolent crimes, misdemeanors, and lower level felonies to obtain a favorable disposition to their case. This reduces the number of cases that go to court, while still holding misdemeanor offenders accountable.
CorrectiveSolutions’ approach to diversion programs provides prosecutors with meaningful alternatives to prosecution that accomplish the following:
- Hold offenders accountable for their crimes
- Save resources required to administer justice and protect public safety
- Connect offenders with local community resources that can provide support for living a law-abiding life
- Offer the flexibility to address the unique circumstances of each case
- Reduce recidivism
All of CorrectiveSolutions' offender programs accomplish these objectives through our use of consistent case management and follow-up with offenders, referrals to community resources that can provide support for basic living needs, and behavioral change intervention education to support lasting life-style changes to reintegrate offenders as productive members of their communities.
