The Monroe County Veterans  Treatment Court assists veterans of the Armed Forces of the United States.  It is a court-supervied program coupled with intensive treatment and supervision for non-violent crminal offenders. It is designed to address those who are entering the courts due to conditions generally related to their military service. Eligible participants are diverted from the normal judicial process to a treatment-based system, including additional resources that traditional probation does not offer.  Furthermore, the Court strives to create a supportive community to foster successful completion of the program.

The program functions as a non-confrontational treatment court focusing on helping each veteran work through service-related conditions.  A team of dedicated professionals will be available to assist veterans in their successful completion of the program.  The program is voluntary and includes monthly court appearances and probation reporting.  It also includes drug and alcohol treatment, mental health treatment, random drug testing, counseling, educational classes, community service and meeting with a mentor

The Monroe County Veterans Treatment Court is held every third Thursday of the month in the courtroom of Judge Terrence Bronson.

Coordinator's Hours: 9AM-12PM, Tues/Wed and 12PM-2PM, every third Thursday or by appointment.

Veteran Mentors are needed.
