Records analysis of outcomes from Peterborough Community Support Court Part 2

Proj. #:4790
Description: The Peterborough Community Support Court provides an alternative path, or diversion, for individuals charged with relatively minor crimes who have mental health and addiction issues. The Court has been keeping statistical records since the court was established in 2001. This data needs to be analysed to understand how well the Court is working and if the data can reveal any significant information that could be used to improve the working of the Court. The project would also look at how other communities have addressed the need for diversion courts and programs for offenders with addiction and mental health problems.
