Diversion Solutions has been providing innovative loss preventions and diversion programs for retailers and Law enforcement 1998. Scott Adkisson and John McCullough began these services by developing an innovative check diversion program by partnering with major retailers
Throughout the upper Midwest. Scott and John developed and managed this check diversion program under the Retailers Protection Association (1997).
In 2000 Scott and John McCullough established Financial Crimes Services (FCS) to help retailers and financial institutions reduce losses due to bad checks and fraud. At the same time, they also formed Diversion Solutions to expand programs for prosecutors needing alternative programming at a city and county level. Both Diversion Solutions and FCS continue to grow and continue to partner with RPA in providing expertise in developing the MN Financial Crimes Task Force program.
As history has it, in 2008 the world changed for many businesses and put a strain on prosecutors’ offices requiring there offices to do more with less.
Diversion Solution has proactively adjusted to serve those growing needs and have expanded their offerings to support prosecutors in these additional areas;
- Drivers License Reinstatement programs
- Traffic Education Courses
- Felony Pre-Charge- Diversion Pilot program
- Sentence Monitoring Educate program
- Custom Diversion programs and accountability programs (alternatives to prosecution).
These best practice programs has been to support merchants with check diversion, understand how fraud develops and then train the entities mentioned above on prevention and apprehension. After providing thousands of training seminars, developing cases and reviewing tens of thousands of fraud documents we at FCS had decided to branch out by developing new diversion programs and software.
Today we continue the leadership and innovation of diversion programs. Working with Victims, the criminal justice systems and the offender, our evidence based training programs assist and effectively create the environment and accountability for offenders to make restitution and change behavior that help put the pieces back together again for both victims, offenders and their communities.
