Other Diversion Program

Start Date: 
2018
Description: 
The Portage County Diversion Program was created to provide low-risk first time offenders a voluntary alternative to criminal adjudication by allowing them to fulfill a set of conditions designed to address, treat, or remedy issues specific to their offense and needs. Evidence suggests traditional criminal justice practices can actually increase the likelihood of recidivism by exposing these individuals to higher risk offenders. The Diversion Program limits or eliminates this exposure.
