The Eau Claire County pre-charging Diversion program is offered to first time offenders who receive certain low level criminal charges or select City/County Ordinance Citations. The purpose of this program is to keep low risk offenders out of the Criminal Justice system and to reduce recidivism, thus preserving limited resources.
