As a former police officer, Jason has come to understand the unintended consequences and subsequent damage caused by marginalisation and inequality within the justice system. He has become a passionate advocate for challenging stigma and diverting people away from the criminal justice system. He helped to develop the Thames Valley drug diversion scheme, which enables everyone found with controlled drugs an assessment of their use and education/harm reduction without the need for arrest, interview nor admission of guilt. This scheme has been a catalyst for health based drug interventions across the UK and further afield, also leading to policy changes within education to negate the need for exclusions. The diversion scheme harmonises with a whole system approach to engage all communities.
He regularly sits on panels of events where he shares his knowledge on evidence based drug diversion, and on emerging out of court disposal schemes in the UK, such as at a recent side event held by the UN Commission on Narcotic Drugs
