LEAD – Law Enforcement Assisted Diversion (Let Everyone Advance with Dignity)

Law Enforcement Assisted Diversion (LEAD®) is a community-based diversion approach with two main goals: improving public safety and public order and reducing unnecessary justice system involvement of people who participate in the program. LEAD® provides a tool for public safety officers to use their discretionary authority to divert individuals suspected of low-level, non-violent crimes away from jail and into community based services with the help of intensive case management.
