Alyson Mahler, Diversion Coordinator
(603) 679-9394

The Rockingham County Adult Diversion Program is a pretrial program designed to divert individuals who have been charged with violation, misdemeanor and/or felony level offenses. Individuals, who are referred to, accepted into and successfully complete the Program avoid prosecution/ convictions, related fines and/or incarceration. The goal is to redirect offenders away from the criminal justice system and toward healthier choices through support, guidance and education.

Mission Statement

The Department’s prime goal is the operation of a safe and humane facility that provides a place of rehabilitation and offers programs and services that afford inmates the opportunities for a positive change.

The Department of Corrections established, in accord with applicable statutes and regulations, a goal of ensuring public safety through the provision of professionally managed judgments of the state courts.

The Department offers the widest practical range of correctional options, including institutionalization, community programs, and other similar sanctions that best serve the needs of society and the individual inmate, enhance the offender’s ability to return to the community and live in a law-abiding manner. The Department will administer its programs in an equitable manner in the least restrictive environment consistent with public safety.

The Department operates its facilities under the principle that all administrative and management decisions either directly or indirectly affect the security and treatment goals of the facility. In that connection, facility staff can serve as an important and productive role model for inmates, conveying mainstream societal values to the inmate population. Opportunities for interaction between staff and inmate are expected to be conducted in a manner consistent with the objective of the facility.

Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA)

What is PREA?

The Prison Rape Elimination Act of 2003 (PREA) is a federal initiative to establish a nationwide standard of zero tolerance for incidences of inmate and offender sexual assault, sexual harassment and rape. Further, the legislation makes the prevention of inmate and offender sexual assault, sexual harassment and sexual misconduct a top priority in penal institutions and under community supervision. The legislation also sets data collection and reporting standards that will be mandated once they are developed

The Rockingham County Department of Corrections has a strict policy of “ZERO Tolerance” concerning instances of Sexual Abuse or Sexual Harassment, as such:

  • Under New Hampshire Law and the Department of Corrections policy, an inmate cannot legally consent to sexual contact with ANYONE while incarcerated.
  • An inmate can have NO sexual contact with another inmate, RCDC staff member, volunteer, contractor or vendor.
  • It is NEVER appropriate for RCDC staff, volunteers, contractors or vendors to make sexual advances or comments, or to engage in sexual contact with an inmate, including those persons under the supervision of Community Corrections.
  • No one will be retaliated against, in any way, for reporting any form of sexual assault or sexual harassment.
