Pretrial Diversion Program

NOTE:  This program is NOT the Pretrial Release Program, which supervises individuals who've been released from the Hamilton County Jail without posting a bond. Please go to Pretrial Services for more information.



Program Details


The Pretrial Diversion Program has been established by the Prosecutor's Office. This program is for people who have had little or no criminal background and who are charged with committing various misdemeanor offenses. If you are offered and accepted into the Diversion Program, your case will be dismissed after a period of 1 year (thereby avoiding a conviction) as long as the requirements and conditions of your specific agreement have been fulfilled.

Office Appointments


All appointments must be scheduled. If you are in the building and need some questions answered, we will attempt to answer any questions that you may have if time is available.

Online Check-In


Current program participants may now use the new online check-in form in lieu of the voicemail procedure.  NOTE: This form is for Pretrial Diversion and not Pretrial Release.  Completion of this form is only appropriate for diversion.
