People who successfully completed the Alternatives to Incarceration pre-filing diversion program in Santa Monica were celebrated at a graduation event recently. ATI, in partnership with the Santa Monica City Attorney’s Office, the Santa Monica Police Department, and Exodus Recovery, operate this program in Santa Monica to connect eligible individuals with mental health, substance use, or housing needs to services in lieu of charges being filed. This helps keep people out of the jail and on the path to a safe and stable life. Along with the Santa Monica program, the pre-filing diversion program also operates in one Los Angeles police district and in Lancaster.
