- During our last call, we requested help with identifying resources, such as presentations and or handouts that address one or all of the following areas linked to pre-arrest diversion: community, diversity, and equity. To date, we have not received any suggestions and or materials. To help with ideas on the types of materials we are looking for, we have included in this alert materials developed by Community Catalyst. We hope this prompts you to provide additional ideas. https://www.communitycatalyst.org/resources/publications/document/Promising-Practices-for-Pre-Arrest-Diversion-Programs.pdf https://www.communitycatalyst.org/resources/publications/meaningful-consumer-engagement-in-pre-arrest-diversion-programs
