Policy and Legislation Strategy Area

Policy and Legislation Strategy Area

 


The Policy and Legislation Workgroup is tasked with tracking legislation and non-legislative rules that serve to promote the practice of prearrest diversion, as well as those that act as barriers to diversion. Members of this workgroup focus on all levels of government: local, state, tribal, and federal. This team also helps translate the efforts of the other PTACC workgroups into pragmatic policy solutions and enacted law.
This Workgroup was established in July 2018 and is in the preliminary stages of creating resources and collecting information for the pre-arrest diversion field. Stay tuned for updates or join us to contribute your expertise!
