    Data-Driven Justice: A Playbook for Developing a System of Diversion for Frequent Utilizers

    The Playbook is designed to help guide the development of a multi-system strategy to successfully divert frequent utilizers, when appropriate, away from the criminal justice and emergency health systems and toward community-based treatment and services. DDJ communities played a key role in developing the Playbook, sharing lessons learned and successful practices so that other communities can build from the work already underway and accelerate progress towards impactful solutions that improve outcomes for vulnerable individuals in their community.

    The Data-Driven Justice (DDJ) Playbook outlines five key elements communities can take when building a system that diverts frequent utilizers from courts and jails to appropriate treatment and services in the community that can provide long-term stability to individuals’ health and social circumstances.
