Harris County has a Veterans Court for those charged with felonies and one for those with misdemeanors.
The purpose of the Veterans Court is to provide interventions to those placed on supervision who have been involved in military service. Many servicemen and women return to the community and face significant barriers. This court is designed to minimize the barriers and help these clients be successful in transitioning to a prosocial lifestyle. The court works in direct connection with the Veterans Administration to ensure that the clients are receiving the appropriate services.
