Policy Brief: Youth Diversion in Los Angeles County
The Youth Diversion & Development division within the Office of Diversion & Reentry is advancing a new, comprehensive model of youth diversion that will connect youth with community-based services that support their development in lieu of arrest or citation.
Informed by the data and evidence summarized in this document, this model will build infrastructure needed to ensure that all youth in Los Angeles County can connect with a continuum of services that address their needs, reducing youth arrests and equitably improving outcomes for youth and communities.
