Diversion

Diversion programs serve as an alternative to law enforcement or court involvement and include a range of initiatives, such as intensive supervisory probation, restitution, mandatory community service, and specialized courts. Diversion may occur before or after the filing of the criminal charge. Successfully completing diversion requirements usually results in a charge being dropped or reduced, while failure may result in the restoration or heightening of the original penalties.
