Jail Diversion, Community Leadership, LOS
In early 2004 a local county sheriff began recognizing the challenges that the county jail was facing with overcrowding and an increasing population with mental illness and substance use. The county sheriff, along with a local advocacy group, created a coalition to begin exploring jail diversion and getting those who needed treatment into treatment and keeping them out of the jail system. This research examines this coalition and looks at the coalition and how community leadership assisted in the formation and the success of the group.
