Veterans Court


Veterans Court logoVeterans Court is a collaborative process that includes the prosecutor, defense counsel, Judge, and sometimes the federal or local state's Department of Veteran Affairs and other community-based support organizations. The goal of Veterans Court is to rehabilitate and restore veterans as active, contributing members of their community.

Veterans Court programs typically focus on veterans who are currently in, or entering, the Criminal Justice System.  The Court creates and supervises treatment plans to address the underlying causes of the veteran's behavior and/or substance abuse issues. Issues commonly addressed by the such treatment programs include:

  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Anger issues
  • Domestic Violence
  • Alcohol abuse
  • Drug Abuse

By focusing on the root problems that contribute to involvement with the criminal justice system and providing specific rehabilitation programs, the Veterans Court provides an opportunity for the veteran to return to the community in a more advantageous and beneficial manner.
