The AIM to B’More (AIM) program was created under the Mosby Administration in 2015. AIM is a diversion program for individuals involved in the criminal justice system for low-level, drug-related felonies and is designed to provide them with an alternative to incarceration. The program offers a variety of resources and services related to mental health, occupational training, and personal development. Individuals served under AIM
represent a critical population whose diversion can have a crucial impact on the long-term health and safety of our community. AIM to B’More merges accountability with real opportunities for self and situational development and sustainability. Ultimately, those who successfully complete the program move forward without the hindrance of a criminal record and with long term career success.
Since the program’s inception, AIM to B’More has pled in 152 participants. Most recent in 2021, AIM hosted a graduation ceremony honoring 26 participants that successfully completed the program during the trying times of the COVID-19 pandemic. During the ceremony, program staff also acknowledged Bruce Brown, one of AIM’s first cohort members that now serves as a Community Liaison for the State’s Attorney’s Office.
Overall, AIM services a population that is 98% Black and predominantly (90%) male. Of eligible participants, 87% have acquired and maintained employment through the AIM Probation Program. Remarkably, AIMs recidivism rate (37%) is well below the national average (68%).
