Alternative Sentencing + Diversion

Alternative Sentencing + Diversion/
OAR works with Arlington County and the City of Falls Church Courts to provide alternative sentencing programs. OAR's community service program allows individuals to do volunteer work in the community in lieu of jail time and fines and to work off their accrued court costs. OAR is implementing a Diversion program in partnership with the Vera Institute and Office of the Commonwealth's Attorney - Arlington County and the City of Falls Church with the goal of reducing recidivism as well as racial disparities amongst individuals sentenced to diversion programs.
