Pietragallo partner Scott A. Coffina will be presenting at the Police, Treatment, and Community Collaborative’s (PTACC) 2023 National Deflection & Pre-Arrest Diversion Summit taking place from October 3-6, 2023 in Denver, Colorado. Mr. Coffina’s presentation “Coloring Inside the Lines: How to Run an Effective and Ethical Diversion Program”, will take place on October 4th.
Drawing upon his experience as the former County Prosecutor of Burlington County, New Jersey, Mr. Coffina will discuss both running an effective police-led intervention program and operating said program in a way that avoids the ethical pitfalls that can plague the treatment industry. He will be joined by Melissa O’Mara from the Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office. The program will highlight the importance of choosing and vetting the right partners, the Eliminating Kickbacks in Recovery Act, support for police and recovery coaches operating the program, as well as oversight, transparency, and accountability.
