Position: L.E.A.D Assistant
Jennifer Parker (coordinator)
Pueblo Police Department, Community Services Division
LEAD stands for Law Enforcement Assisted Diversion. It is “a pre-booking diversion program that aims to improve public health and to end the cycle of recidivism. Instead of being charged and booked following an arrest, the arresting officer identifies the arrestee as a potential participant for the diversion program and subsequently connects them with the case manager.”
You will help foster “collaborative partnerships between local law enforcement, district attorney’s offices, sheriffs, treatment providers and other community stakeholders” by daily scanning in documents and emailing them to each partner. A volunteer will scan the paperwork from the arrest, along with any corresponding paperwork and email to a list of agencies.
1-2 days a week, 15- 60 minutes a day.
You will receive training on gathering the correct paperwork, scanning/printing, and emailing.
You will need to have basic computer skills and ability to follow directions.
