The Community Diversion Program will be hosting an open house for the public on Thursday, September 25th, 2008 from 3:00 PM to 7:00 PM located at 440 Portsmouth Avenue in Greenland, N.H. The Portsmouth Police Department along with other police departments in the seacoast have worked in conjunction with the Community Diversion Program for many years.
The mission of the Community Diversion Program is to “provide an alternative to court involvement for youth and families in the Greater Seacoast Area of New Hampshire”.
The Community Diversion Program was established in 1995 to provide court diversion for youth and families in Eastern Rockingham County. Since its inception, CDP has worked with over 5,000 youth through drug and alcohol prevention efforts, community service projects and a variety of programs designed to help youth navigate their teen years.
