Start a Veterans Court in Your Community
The Buffalo Veterans Treatment Court team, the National Drug Court Institute (NDCI) and the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) launched the 2010 Veterans Treatment Court Planning Initiative (VTCPI) in October 2010. It was the first Veterans Treatment Court training program in the nation.
New York State Office of Court Administration and the National Development and Research Institute, Inc., have collaborated pursuant to a grant by New York Health Foundation on the Development and implementation of a curriculum and instructional trainings of existing problem solving courts in New York State that have expressed interest in establishing veterans treatment courts in their jurisdiction. The training will be held over two days with participants from teams from 10 New York State courts: five from the New York City/Albany regions, and five from Western New York.
