Juvenile court diversion is an approach to help both youth and those harmed by their offenses heal and repair from their actions. Research shows that most young people age out of delinquent behavior with no intervention, by simply growing up; and diversion programs are a more productive way to prevent future arrests. Being involved in the court system does more long-term harm than good. In this episode we are joined by Diane Casale, Program Coordinator at the New Hampshire Juvenile Court Diversion Network, and Nicole Rodler, Juvenile Division Coordinator with the Rochester Police Department, who discuss how court diversion is a win/win approach for everyone.
