Jail diversion and correctional case management increases coordination of resources between the mental health, criminal justice and social services systems. Our team works closely with Burlington, Camden and Mercer County law enforcement to divert nonviolent mental health consumers from the jail system to appropriate mental health services in the community. We work with Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) trained officers, non-CIT trained officers, other identified law enforcement and additional referral sources to help those in need. Working together creates a bridge leading to positive outcomes for people who may otherwise be incarcerated.

Services are provided in the community Monday – Friday from 9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. For additional information about Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) training, please call 856-482-8747.
