Why It Works
The Contra Costa County District Attorney Bad Check Diversion Restitution Program works because...
- Bad check incident reports are easy to file and follow-up action is prompt.
- Upon recovery, 100 percent of the face value of the check is returned to the victim.
- There is no minimum dollar restriction.
- Bad check offenders must complete an eight-hour educational class at their own expense.
- The program operates at no cost to the county or the taxpayers.
