Alternatives to Detention

Alternatives to Detention (ATD) is a San Diego County-wide program that provides a continuum of detention alternatives to lowisk juvenile offenders who do not require secure detention. ATD staff provides in-home supportive services to youth who committed an offense that did not require detention, but are ineligible for police diversion services.  Youth are given the opportunity to begin engaging in family wrap around services while their case moves forward to the District Attorney’s Office. Youth will still face charges for their offense, however they will be held accountable for their actions with little to no time in detention. SAY San Diego is serving the youth and families who reside in the Central and North Central regions of San Diego.

SAY is a subcontractor to South Bay Community Services on this project.
