Advent Releases Offense Index for 2023

Advent has released its Offense Index for Calendar 2023 which tracks the types of criminal offenses for which Advent eLearning clients assigned our online intervention courses.

In 2023, Advent delivered and supported over 70,000 intervention courses for US criminal justice agencies. Advent serves hundreds of clients across the criminal justice spectrum, throughout the US, including prosecutors, courts, law enforcement agencies, and probation/community corrections.

Our online intervention courses are used in a variety of applications, including diversion and alternative sentencing programs, law enforcement pre-file diversions, court-ordered treatment programs, and for probation/corrections sanction applications.

Advent courses are designed specifically to address types of criminal behaviors; this index assumes our criminal justice clients are using the Advent eLearning platform to assign the online interventions most appropriate for the offenses committed.


In 2023, a little over a third of programs assigned were for substance offenses, including alcohol and marijuana offenses and violations. Another 18 percent of courses were assigned for theft and retail theft offenses.

Approximately 15 percent assigned general cognition programs for either nuisance violations or in general probation sanction applications. This cognitive-behavioral treatment methodology also forms the basis of Advent Level II courses, which saw significant growth in 2023.

Just over 12% of courses were assigned for personal conflict offenses such as misdemeanor assault or harassment. Another 11 percent of interventions were assigned for misdemeanor traffic offenses, with growth driven primarily through the increased use of our behavioral-based Defensive Driving course in reckless, no-insurance and license suspension/reinstatement programs.

Around four percent were assigned for juvenile and status offenses including underage alcohol or marijuana possession, school conflicts, and juvenile sexting.

Finally, a combined seven percent of interventions related to family court sanctions, firearm violations, animal and wildlife code violations, prostitution buyers, and financial crimes and fraud.
