Applications for 2018 trainings are now closed. Applications for 2019 trainings open September 2018.

This training is FREE but you must have a minimum of three veterans treatment court teams participate. There is a maximum of five veterans treatment court teams. All teams must be identified by January 31, 2018.
Through this training you will:
- Learn the latest best practices and how they should be applied to your program
- Revise policies and practices relating to incentives and sanctions, target population, supervision, and drug testing
- Receive an update on pertinent case law
Who Should Attend?
This workshop is designed for veterans treatment court teams. Because the workshop is highly interactive and focuses on group decision-making and consensus, the training experience will be enhanced by the attendance of as many team members as possible. Justice For Vets requires, at a minimum, the following attend due to their day-to-day interactions with clients:
- Treatment provider
- Defense attorney
- Law enforcement officer
- Probation officer
Without these core team members it is unlikely that your team will be accepted.
This is training is free but jurisdictions must provide a training space at no cost to Justice For Vets. See our meeting room specifications for more information.
