There is a growing consensus in state government on the need to reduce prison populations and develop innovative ways to rehabilitate nonviolent criminal offenders that do not subject them to years in the criminal justice system and a lifetime with a criminal record. Through their diversion programs, district attorneys play a critical role in accomplishing this goal. These audits examine the administration and data collection at some of these programs and provide actionable steps to improve program evaluation and guide improvements.
