Operating out of Bronx County Criminal Court and the surrounding community, Bronx Community Solutions (BCS) offers criminal justice programming in the areas of pretrial diversion; misdemeanor and non-violent felony defendants whose cases are pending; and alternative to incarceration programming for non-violent crimes by providing additional sentencing options for offenders. These programs reduce the reliance on pre-trial detention and short-term jail sentences and offer defendants the assistance they need to avoid further criminal conduct.
