Check Diversion Program

Are you a resident or business owner who has become a victim of a bad check?

As consumers and taxpayers, we all pay higher prices because of the losses associated with people issuing worthless checks. Law Enforcement spends significant resources investigating and prosecuting people who issue worthless checks. In response to concerns regarding worthless checks, the Medina Police Department has implemented a worthless check diversion program.

The main goals of the program are:

  • Restitution for victims
  • Increase accountability of people who issue worthless checks
  • Educate and assist Medina merchants and residents in reducing the number of worthless checks cases
  • Reduce the costs to law enforcement associated with investigating and prosecuting worthless check cases

The program is at no cost to the taxpayer or area merchants. It is solely supported by the people who issue the worthless check!
