BACKGROUND: The St. Louis County Board has received a letter from Judge Dale Harris and the Sixth Judicial District seeking a letter of support from the St. Louis County Board for a grant application to the U.S. Bureau of Justice Administration (BJA). This grant would provide funding to implement a Veterans Treatment Court in South St. Louis County.

Beginning in 2014, a variety of representatives have worked together to start a designated court calendar for some of the veterans of the County. Since that time other components of treatment court have been added to the program. A need has been identified for this Veterans Treatment Court and with the success of this program over the past four years the ability to elevate the program has been recommended. With this application the County is not being asked to provide any financial or other assistance other than a letter of support.
