Juvenile Entry Diversion Initiative
Juvenile Enry Diversion Initiative (JEDI)


The Juvenile Entry Diversion Initiative (JEDI) was started in FY 2012 to prevent youth from becoming negatively involved in the juvenile justice system. 
The Juvenile Entry Diversion Initiative focuses on two core case management components:  diverting juvenile offenders from the Department of Juvenile Services (DJS) to community-based programs and services and redirecting Children In Need of Supervision (CINS) cases away from DJS to community-based programs and services.  The JEDI program primarily serves first time misdemeanor offenders as well as alleged Children In Need of Supervision.
