What are the advantages of Diversion to the community?
Local problems can often be addressed by utilizing local volunteers who represent the community’s best interest. Such would be the case in utilizing Diversion as a means to address local or community problems. Diversion is a considerably less expensive process than that of formal court processing.

The Diversion Program interfaces directly with community service organizations, counseling services, the schools, law enforcement, the juveniles themselves, and their families. This provides a community response and ownership to juvenile crime. Simply stated, Diversion allows the community to assume responsibility for its juvenile crime problems and makes the youth accountable to the community for his or her behavior.
