Criminal Justice Programs
The Peoples Coalition (referred to as TPC) realizes that there may be reasons why someone faces their first arrest and possible conviction for a crime which do not always include willful disregard of the law and authority. As a result, “TPC Diversion Program
” has been established as an alternative sentencing program for many first-time offenders to prevent a criminal record and incarceration.
Often, these programs target juvenile first time offenders with little regard for the many adults who find themselves in trouble with the law for the first time and have no concept of what to do about it. TPC understands that he or she could be dealing with one of the most stressful times in his or her life. After an arrest, we often hear from offenders that they are suffering from feelings of anxiety, feeling overwhelmed and fearing what may lie ahead.
