Aaron Johnson is passionate about diverting young offenders away from a life of crime because he is all too familiar with what it’s like to be criminalised. He works for Divert, a Metropolitan Police custody programme designed to help get young offenders into work or education. The project has helped change the path young offenders find themselves on by offering them alternatives. Aaron is one of the custody intervention coaches who meets the offender inside a police custody cell. It is critical prevention work that is making a real difference at giving people a second chance.
