Former Jeffco Commissioner Kathy Hartman was hired by the district attorney’s office recently as director of diversion services for Jefferson and Gilpin Counties.
Hartman will begin the new position on March 1, heading 20 staff members.
The diversion program provides nonviolent, first-time felons with opportunities to give restitution and seek appropriate professional treatment. Successful participants in the program are eligible to have felonies erased from their records.
