Post-charge Diversion and Deferred Prosecution Program

Description: 
The Fond du Lac County Diversion Program provides increased community safety through diversion and supervision of offenders with a limited prior criminal history. The program provides an opportunity for participants to prove through their conduct that they accept responsibility for their actions, are willing to make amends for the effects, and are not a continuing risk to reoffend in the community. The Diversion Program uses evidence-based practices to assess participants' risk and need factors in order to effectively and efficiently address the underlying issues that result in criminal behaviors, and provide participants with the tools, treatment, and supervision necessary to allow them to make amends, make improvements, and move forward as pro-social members of the community.
