LEAD Pre-Arrest Diversion

LEAD (law enforcement assisted diversion) is a public health framework that reduces both harm and recidivism, equipping officers with an alternative to arrest that addresses underlying needs and the mass incarceration crisis. As the chair of the Buffalo LEAD working group, Tanvier coordinates meetings between the City of Buffalo, Buffalo Police Department, Erie County District Attorney’s Office, and community stakeholders to implement the pre-arrest diversion program in the City of Good Neighbors. She is currently working with the City to finalize the memorandum of understanding and establish and serve on the policy coordinating group for execution.
