Featured Program

DIVERT (Direct Intervention using Voluntary Education, Restitution and Treatment)  is a pre-trial diversion program for eligible first time DWI offenders in Harris County with no prior criminal history.   The program took its first clients in September of 2009.   From the inception,   HCCSCD has evaluated 2338 clients for entry into the DIVERT program.   As of May, there are currently 1392 clients who have signed an agreement with the District Attorney’s office for the DIVERT program.   


The clients are assessed up front by Harris County Community Supervision and Corrections Department and a report is forwarded to the DA’s office and the Court for consideration into the program.  The DIVERT clients are currently being supervised at 49 San Jacinto as well as the North, South and West Region offices on a limited basis.   The clients are required to attend treatment as outlined in their recommendations, complete the DIVERT education classes designed to prevent driving under the influence,  have an ignition interlock installed on their vehicles for a minimum period of time,  and complete 16 hours of community service. 


The program is an opportunity for a first time DWI offender to complete a program that promotes community safety and subsequently affords an opportunity to have the case dismissed upon successful completion.
