PDP is a program managed by the  Behavioral Health Services Department (BHSD) to provide alternatives to prosecution that divert certain offenders from traditional criminal justice processing into a program of supervision by the Probation Department. In the majority of cases, offenders are diverted at the pre-charge stage. Participants who successfully complete the program will not be charged or, if charged, will have the charges against them dismissed; unsuccessful participants will be returned for prosecution.

The major objectives of pretrial diversion are: To prevent future criminal activity by diverting individuals from traditional processing into community supervision and services; to save prosecutorial and judicial resources; and to provide, where appropriate, a vehicle for restitution to communities and victims of crime.
