    JAIL DIVERSION PROGRAMS open
    In addition to easing jail populations, and reducing costs, Jail Diversion Programs are a better way to deal with persons with mental illness. According to NAMI, up to 40 percent of adults with mental illness will come into contact with law enforcement, and are often jailed for nonviolent, victimless crimes. Nationally, 16 percent of the jail population is incarcerated for offenses related to mental illness, mental retardation, or substance abuse. Of these, 60 percent to 75 percent were jailed for nonviolent offenses.
