Prearrest or postarrest diversion programs.
Prearrest or postarrest diversion programs.—
A law enforcement agency or school district, in cooperation with the state attorney, may establish a prearrest or postarrest diversion program.
As part of the prearrest or postarrest diversion program, a child who is alleged to have committed a delinquent act may be required to surrender his or her driver’s license, or refrain from applying for a driver’s license, for not more than 90 days. If the child fails to comply with the requirements of the program, the state attorney may notify the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles in writing to suspend the child’s driver’s license for a period that may not exceed 90 days.
The prearrest or postarrest diversion program may, upon agreement of the agencies that establish the program, provide for the expunction of the nonjudicial arrest record of a minor who successfully completes such a program pursuant to s. 943.0582.
