Law Enforcement Officers

Law Enforcement Officers can be a great help to all types of drug courts. Community policing and school resource officers have expanded the accountability of the drug court system. Community police officers are able to make home visits, provide BAC testing and provide the eyes and ears on the streets. School resource officers are able to help in juvenile and family drug court settings by providing insight to the team about the youth’s school behavior and activities. They can also provide support in the school setting for the participant.
