Military Cultural Competence, Veterans Treatment Court And Veterans Transfer Leg

Military Culture Competence_675

Those who served in the military have been influenced by factors specific to their service. Influences come from branches, ranks and duty of service. Many justice-involved veterans cope with serious issues such as alcohol and substance use, a mental health disorder, homelessness, unemployment and others. The Veterans Treatment Court can provide services and mentorship to justice-involved veterans to address these issues and needs. In New York State, justice-involved veterans can access a Veterans Treatment Court in an adjacent county, if one doesn’t exist in the county where their case is pending. The speakers describe how Veterans Treatment Courts assist justice-involve veterans. You will learn about the removal and transfer legislation (CPL 230.31) which authorizes access Veterans Treatment Courts for eligible justice-involved veterans.
