Swanswell to work with Thames Valley Police on drugs diversion pilot scheme in West Berkshire

Posted on: 18 December, 2018

Thames Valley Police has launched a drugs diversion pilot scheme in West Berkshire. The scheme, which aims to reduce the harm caused by the use of drugs and drug-related offences, allows offenders in possession of small quantities of illegal drugs an opportunity to be offered a tailored diversion route through Swanswell West Berkshire drug recovery service, to address their use of drugs instead of facing prosecution.

Swanswell, part of the Cranstoun group, has worked in partnership with Thames Valley Police to develop the drug diversion scheme and specialist support programme.
