Operational Tune-up

Applications for 2020 Operational Tune-ups Now Being Accepted

Application Deadline: November 22, 2019

Ongoing training is critical to the success of veterans treatment courts. Operational Tune-up will challenge you to self-assess, and then work with you to take corrective steps to improve outcomes.

This training is FREE but you must have at least two but no more than three veterans treatment court teams to participate. All teams must have two years of operational experience.

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 operational 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:

  • Judge
  • Prosecutor
  • Coordinator
  • 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.

To qualify, applicants must:

  • Be a veterans treatment court in operation for at least two years
  • Have three court teams to participate
  • Submit requested court documents as attachments with their application (policy and procedure manual, participant handbook, etc.)
  • Submit a letter of support from the state treatment court coordinator as an attachment within the application
