The Diversion Referral Program aims to help reduce the Oklahoma County Detention Center (OCDC) population through referrals for individuals who qualify for services provided by community partners. The Diversion Referral Program embeds staff members at OCDC who use a brief survey to help identify and assess eligibility of individuals for referral opportunities. providing the survey either during the booking process or meeting with individuals once they are in OCDC. Diversion liaisons then work to connect the individuals to life-stabilizing resources and programs.
