Expand opportunities for diversion.

Target actors: Prosecutors, law enforcement, public defenders, service providers, community advocates.

Prosecutors can work with other system actors to establish internal processes for referring cases to diversion programs instead of filing charges. Programs might include restorative justice programs, mental health treatment, substance use supports, and community support services. Similarly, police can adopt internal policies for connecting people with community services instead of making arrests.
