Vets…Is The Law On Your Ass For Something? Check Into This…

          The Veterans Justice Outreach Program may be what your looking for. 

I know from personal experience that this

avenue of handling problems with the court system or justice system is the way to go. 

Justice For Vets

 

The purpose of the Veterans Justice Outreach (VJO) Program is to avoid the unnecessary criminalization of mental illness and extended incarceration among Veterans by ensuring that eligible justice-involved Veterans have timely access to VHA services as clinically indicated. Veterans Justice Outreach Specialists are responsible for direct outreach, assessment, and case management for justice-involved Veterans in local courts and jails, and liaison with local justice system partners.
