JUVENILE & ADULT DIVERSION PROGRAM
The Center for Prevention and Restorative Justice (CPRJ) in the 20th Judicial District Attorney’s Office delivers a high-quality diversion model that emphasizes accountability and prevention, applies restorative justice practices and principles, matches services to needs, and effectively achieves community safety by decreasing risk of recidivism.
