Specialty Courts

Cumberland County is fortunate enough to have a number of specialty courts, diversionary programs, and sentencing options that focus on treatment and rehabilitation to improve long-term success for people ensnared in the criminal justice system. 

The Public Defender's Office is dedicated to advocating for each and every one of our clients, because we are all made stronger and safer when our neighbors are supported and offered a helping-hand to get healthier.
