The Diversion Programme is a vital crime prevention tool complimented by a restorative justice framework that translates into a strategic asset for An Garda Síochána. This approach provides a unique opportunity for the organisation to engage with young people involved in offending behaviour. This engagement is critical in supporting them to address their behaviour and to assist them in making positive choices. In my role as Chairperson, I wish to highlight the excellent work being carried out by all those involved in the operation of the Diversion Programme on a daily basis. The Monitoring Committee monitors the effectiveness of the Diversion Programme by identifying areas for improvement and making recommendations to ensure that the Programme continues to be an effective means in diverting children from crime. The Annual Report highlights the developments that occurred during the year, identifies current challenges to the Programme, and provides statistics regarding the functioning of the Programme in 2019. Having monitored the effectiveness of the Diversion Programme through our engagement with the Garda Youth Diversion Bureau, a number of recommendations have been identified for delivery in 2020.
