The Bexar County, Texas Jail Diversion Program: Measuring Benefits

This policy report describes the criminal justice costs that are avoided because of the Bexar County Jail Diversion program.  The diversion program relies on a multi-pronged approach, including pre- and post-booking interventions.  Costs were estimated using state data as well as case-level costs from similar programs.  Studies of cost-effectiveness and other outcomes can help build and sustain support for a strategy that involves multiple stakeholders.
