There should be means to bring back the concerned person into formal system in case of failure of the treatment (Klein, 1979, p.152). Thirdly, the diversion should not lapse into non-treatment (Klein, 1979, p.152). Utmost care has to be taken in selecting the clients because it has to be ensured that they are apt for diversion programmes (Klien, 1979, p.160). To place the client in a separate locality other than directly inside the community will be a wiser option because it has been proven that there is no less stitgmatization involved in a community situation (Klein, 1979, p.181). The key concept of an optimal sanctioning strategy must be “diversion without referral, diversion away from but not to.” (Klein, 1979, p.183). Thus diversion has to become “a positive extension of the existing juvenile justice system” (Pogrebin, Poole and Regoli, 1984, p.305). (c) In the diversion programme carried out in Adams County, Colorado, the objective was to “reduce court caseloads; lower recidivism rates; not lower the net of social control; and, lend itself to rigorous evaluation” (Pogrebin, Poole and Regoli, 1984, p.306).
