Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2005, $200,000)

This community-based problem-solving criminal justice initiative involves the planning and implementation of a community court to serve the Pacific Beach, Mission Beach, and Mission Bay Park communities, known as the Beach Area, in the City of San Diego. The lead agency is the San Diego City Attorney's Office, working in partnership with the San Diego Police Department, San Diego Superior Court, other criminal justice agencies, and community-based organizations.

The proposed Beach Area Community Court will be a prosecutorial diversion program for adult offenders who commit misdemeanors and infractions, especially low-level alcohol-related offenses, that impact quality of life.
