Evaluation

A data driven approach to evaluation is vital to monitoring program effectiveness, assessing outcomes, maintaining accountability and contributing to knowledge about pre-arrest diversion.

Pre-arrest diversion programs must be driven by consistent and precise data collection. This includes continual program evaluation that will generate actionable information for administrators, law enforcement partners, judicial officials, and the public. This is a critical component to ensure public safety is maintained, the program is implemented and operating consistently, and the outcomes are monitored to guide program refinements. Information should also be used to demonstrate the investment of public resources and build trust regarding the pre-arrest diversion program.
