Juvenile Diversion Program and Requirements

About the Juvenile Diversion Program Requirements

All juveniles who are referred into the Diversion program will be required to complete a Risk Assessment and Diversion Review. Click on the side links to understand the requirements.

Risk Assessment

The Risk Assessment is an interview with the juvenile and at least one parent or guardian. It was designed to determine the level of risk for re-offending posed by the juvenile offender and target the most appropriate and effective interventions to guide the rehabilitative effort. The assessment instrument used by the Boulder DA is called the Washington State Juvenile Court Assessment.

Diversion Review

The Diversion Review is a meeting between the juvenile, their parent(s) / guardian(s), and the Diversion Coordinator. It is held a few days after the first court appearance. If accepted into the Diversion program, juveniles are issued appropriate conditions based on the Risk Assessment, criminal history, DA recommendations, and the severity of the charges.

If the juvenile denies responsibility, refuses Diversion and is not deemed appropriate for the program for other reasons, they will be given a return court date.
