Bad Check Diversion Program

The Pittsfield Township Police Department, in cooperation with the Washtenaw County Prosecutor's Office, have developed a bad check policy and restitution policy for Pittsfield Township residents and businesses. Visit our Bad Check Restitution Policy page for more information.

For those who only desire monetary restitution from a civil court case, as opposed to seeking criminal prosecution, the Bad Check Restitution Program can assist you. The Bad Check Restitution Program was specifically designed to assist merchants in recovering losses from intentionally written bad checks. The Program is FREE to all victims who accept a bad check within Washtenaw County. It is designed to handle dishonored checks marked 'Insufficient or Non-sufficient Funds,' 'Account Closed' and 'No Account' that are passed in Washtenaw County. Our primary goal is to assure full restitution for the victim, including a victim's service fee, without adding to the financial burden of the criminal justice system. Go to the Washtenaw County Bad Check Restitution Program for more information, forms, and to sign up.
