The ineffective and perpetual cycle of arrest and incarceration among low-level drug offenders who are not violent or dangerous has challenged law enforcement to consider comprehensive, multi-faceted approaches for drug users. Growing recognition among law enforcement that low-level drug offenders are better dealt with outside of the criminal justice system has led to the growth of programs such as Law Enforcement Assisted Diversion (LEAD). This video features the work of Santa Fe, New Mexico's LEAD program, which was the second department in the country to implement LEAD. LEAD programs allow law enforcement to collaborate with a multidisciplinary group of people who work in the criminal justice system and social services to develop multi-faceted interventions that address the root causes of chaotic drug use. Research shows that LEAD programs drastically reduce recidivism, greatly increase people's likelihood of finding employment and housing, and result in massive savings to law enforcement and the criminal justice system.
