Welcome to the Civil Citation Network (CNN).
Dedicated to fundamentally reforming the criminal justice system, Civil Citation Network (CNN) was founded in 2013 with the purpose of paring Criminal Justice research with customized technology solutions to help local jurisdictions offer promising alternatives to arrest. Our Network leverages decades of experience in behavior health and criminal justice practices to bring innovative solutions to community diversion needs.
Our goal is to provide innovative solutions to help individuals, programs, and communities on the way to more meaningful outcomes. Directing individuals toward intervention and/or treatment of underlying problems rather than arrest, jail and a life-long criminal record can have significant impact in communities, avoids costs associated with formal arrest, booking and court processing, and reduces the burden on already overtaxed jail and court systems.
Moreover, our approach creates significant financial benefits, allows police officers significantly more time to focus on serious crimes in the community, and improves public safety.
Thank you for your interest and look forward to partnering as we explore diversion options that fit the needs of your community.
