Diversion and Prevention


The Citation Diversion Program (formerly Informal Juvenile Traffic Court) addresses citations issued and referred by law enforcement agencies countywide as outlined in Welfare and Institutions Code (WIC) Section 256, including but not limited to vehicle code violations, misdemeanors and infractions.  The Citations/Arrest Referrals are received directly from Law Enforcement agencies or eligible misdemeanors received through Probation Sorting locations

On February 25, 2022, the Superior Court of California, Presiding Judge, Juvenile Court issued a standing order to allow the Probation Department to vacate and terminate any outstanding orders and recall and quash any outstanding warrants/holds for Juvenile matters referred to the Citation Diversion Program.

In light of this standing order, all Citations referred to the Citation Diversion Program are beig closed and any related orders, such as community service, etc. have been terminated.  Additionally, if applicable, the Department of Motor Vehicles is being notified to release all driver’s license warrants/holds related to the matters.

To obtain information regarding the closure of your citation and release of any Driver’s License warrants/holds related to the matter, please contact the Citation Diversion Program at the contact numbers listed below (under “Contact Us”)
