Orange County Combat Veterans Court

Innovations in the California Courts - 20 of Years of Great Ideas
Superior Court of California, County of Orange
2010–2011 Recipient of the Ralph N. Kleps Award for Improvement in the Administration of the Courts

The first program of its kind in California, this veterans court is a dedicated criminal calendar offering therapeutic treatment instead of incarceration for combat veterans. The first-time offenders served by the court have disorders arising from combat experience, including substance abuse issues, diagnoses of posttraumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injury, and other psychological problems.
