Veterans Treatment Court

Qualifying veterans who have entered the criminal justice system as a result of traumatic experiences they endured while in the military, may be eligible to participate in Veterans Treatment Court (VTC.)  This is a rigorous 12-18 month program of supervised probation which includes treatment, counseling, and regular court appearances.  Several agencies, such as the Superior Court, the Sheriff’s Office, Probation, Mental Health, the District Attorney’s Office, the Public Defender’s Office and Veterans Services collaborate with the Veterans Administration and trained volunteer veteran mentors, with the shared goal of rehabilitating the veteran and reducing recidivism.
For more information see the County of San Luis Obispo Veterans Services Office.
