Is Your City Over-Criminalized?

Is your city arresting and jailing substance abusers, the mentally ill, and the homeless? There’s a more humane and cost-effective way to deal with people who have these problems. Instead of criminalizing them, they could be placed into diversion programs.

Diversion programs work better than incarceration – for everyone. In cities like Seattle, San Antonio, and Salt Lake City, we see that successful solutions are a viable option to help end serious social problems. These services alter the course of people’s lives in a positive way and save taxpayers huge amounts of money. We cannot continue to isolate and imprison people who suffer from mental illness, substance abuse, or homelessness. We must treat them with compassion and care to better serve our communities and our pocketbooks.
