Diversionary Service

The Palm Island Diversionary Service works with people on Palm Island who are vulnerable or who have complex needs, and especially with people who are intoxicated, at risk of misusing substances in public spaces or at risk of entering police custody. Operating the Diversion Centre and Community (Adult) Patrol, this service helps to reduce the incidence of deaths in custody by providing a safe, monitored environment for people to sober up as an alternative to police custody.
