Juveniles facing a first-time criminal offense will be screened for Diversion.
Diversion is for youth who require minimal intervention and supervision to be successful.
The Diversion program provides minimal supervision in accordance with risk and need. This level of supervision must be appropriate to ensure community safety and victim input.
The level of impact of the offense means that some cases are not eligible for Diversion.
Juveniles will also be screened for Diversion using the Arizona Risk and Needs Assessment screening tool.
Juveniles with a moderate to high score on this tool are ineligible for Diversion.
Juvenile Diversion eligibility is provided in compliance with CRS 19-2-303.
Weld County Adult Diversion program eligibility is similar.
