Principles of Prosecutor-Led Gun Diversion Programming

Network Lead, Matt Epperson and two University of Chicago Crown Family School of Social Work colleagues—Hanna Sharif-Kazemi and Hannah Lee—have issued a report titled “Principles of Prosecutor-Led Gun Diversion Programming: The National Landscape and Current Trends.”

“This kind of gun diversion work is being done in many different cities in different ways and interest for them is growing,” said Hannah Lee of the Crown Family School’s Smart Decarceration Project (SDP). “More prosecutors’ offices are exploring them as an option if they haven’t started a program yet.”
