New Generation Policing ep. 1: What is police-led diversion?

Revolving Doors has been championing conversations around creating new and better ways of policing people who experience multiple disadvantage, and especially young adults. The first three episodes of this series look at the concept of pre-arrest diversion and its implications for people trapped in the revolving door of crisis and crime with the Law Enforcement Assisted Diversion (LEAD) Bureau, pioneers of the first police-assisted diversion programme in the US. In this first episode, we discuss the inception of LEAD and how it has grown to influence almost 100 jurisdictions across the US and beyond. We hear about the LEAD team’s experience navigating unchartered waters to set up their police-led diversion scheme, and associated challenges and achievements.
