Cleveland Municipal Court starts Veterans Treatment Court

Local politicians were on hand Thursday as Cleveland Municipal Court introduced the new Veterans Treatment Court.

The Veterans Treatment Docket is a specialized docket that works within the framework of the existing Cleveland Municipal Court. It is intended to serve court-involved active duty service members and veterans.

The Veterans Treatment Docket deals with probationers whose actions may include a range of needs and offenses. What they have in common is not necessarily their behavior, but their past military service.

Other specialty dockets, operated by the court, are probationers with similar behavioral issues and needs such as mental health, alcohol and other drugs, domestic violence and solicitation.
