About San Francisco Pretrial Diversion Project

Story

Through our 40+ years of criminal justice reform advocacy, we have countless first-hand accounts of the damages that needless pretrial detention can inflict. Individuals are displaced from their families and communities, which can negatively affect their professional stability and introduce the stigma and trauma that so often accompanies incarceration. Indeed, a 2014 study conducted by the The Center for Health and Justice discovered that “low-risk” defendants who were detained for 2-3 days were 39% more likely to be arrested for recidivism in the pretrial period than “low-risk” pretrial defendants detained for less than 24 hours. Risk of arrest for reoffense in the pretrial period increased to 50% for individuals detained between 4-7 days, 56% for individuals detained between 8-14 days, and 57% for those detained between 15-30 days.

Conversely, we have time and time again seen the positive outcomes achieved through alternatives to pretrial detention. SFPDP brings an individualized approach to client supervision immediately after release, which means we expediently adapt services based on the circumstances and needs of respective clients.
