About Us

The Law Enforcement Assisted Diversion (LEAD) program is a community-based diversion approach to law violations that flow from addiction and mental illness. The LEAD National Support Bureau responds to this national demand for strategic guidance and technical support to local jurisdictions developing LEAD programs. Based in Seattle, the Bureau is led and staffed by members of a team of public health and justice system veterans who designed the original Seattle LEAD program, and others who have now launched LEAD in other jurisdictions. The LEAD National Support Bureau also draws on the expertise of prosecutors, police, case managers and community public safety leaders who are now using LEAD on the ground, and are willing to share lessons learned with their peers around the country.
