Webinar on Youth Diversion Strategies for Law Enforcement

On January 23, 2014, at 2:00 p.m. E.T., the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention is hosting a Webinar “Effective Youth Diversion Strategies for Law Enforcement”, in collaboration with the International Association of Chiefs of Police.  The ninety-minute Webinar will focus on youth diversion programs, including program development, implementation challenges, and successes.  Registration is available here.

In Indiana, law enforcement has the first voice in whether a child may be detained or not, and whether the case is referred to probation or the Indiana Department of Child Services.  This type of training of the first responders meshes with the Juvenile Detention Alternatives Initiative (JDAI), when the decision about detention has reached the point of the probation/intake officer pre-adjudication or the judge post-adjudication.
