DISTRICT COURT DIVERSION PROGRAM EXPANDS ITS PROBATION PROGRAM BEGINNING TODAY

Starting today, Oct. 18, 2021, the District Court Diversion Program (DCDP) will expand its pilot DCDP Probation Program from 5 district courts to all 18 of them county-wide, allowing for the inclusion of additional participants who need drug treatment, but who are currently ineligible for the DCDP Program due to their prior records and their drug of choice. 

Individuals in the expanded DCDP Probation Program will be sentenced to six (6) months of probation.  As part of their probation, each participant must abide by the rules of the Bucks County Adult Probation and Parole Department; and shall schedule a drug and alcohol assessment within three (3) business days and abide by all treatment recommendations of the assessment. 

The DCDP Probation Program expedites drug and alcohol treatment and ensures accountability by placing the individual needing treatment on probation sooner.
