The Sacramento Probation Department’s Break Away Bike Program was selected as one of only 12 county programs throughout California for the California State Association of Counties (CSAC) Challenge Award.
The Break Away Bike program was created to address Adult Drug Court program participants who, upon release from custody, have no means of transportation to attend required treatment sessions and Court appearances. Participants who fail to report can face sanctions and delayed progress within the program. Through the Break Away Bike program, Adult Drug Court participants earn donated bicycles with consecutive negative drug tests; this addresses transportation issues, incentivizes attendance and sobriety, and reduces barriers to treatment.
