The success of our 4-year pilot Adult Pre-Arrest Diversion (APAD) Program has made our community a leader in the national effort to improve public safety while at the same time finding alternatives to criminal arrest for low-level offenders.

The positive results of the program have been highlighted in published articles/studies and presentations at national and state level conferences. Examples include the International Association of Chiefs of Police, National League of Cities, American Legislative Exchange Council, American Journal of Criminal Justice, American Society of Criminology, Florida Legislature Bill Analyses, James Madison Institute, Florida TaxWatch, Florida Smart Justice Alliance, Florida Alcohol and Drug Abuse Association.

The program also enabled the Civil Citation Network to join with the Center for Health and Justice at TASC (Treatment Alternative for Safer Communities) to start a significant national advocacy group with the goal of expanding the implementation of pre-arrest diversion programs. Along with the Civil Citation Network and TASC, nine other agencies with national influence are part of the Police, Treatment, and Community (PTAC) Collaborative. The founding agencies of the PTAC Collaborative include:

• Civil Citation Network
• Pre-Trial Justice Institute
• Center for Court Innovation
• National League of Cities
• Association of Prosecuting Attorneys
• International Association of Chiefs of Police
• C4 Recovery Solutions
• AdCare Criminal Justice Services
• George Mason University
• Western Carolina University
