Questions and Answers

The Judicial Council of California (“Judicial Council”), chaired by the Chief Justice of California, is the chief policy making agency of the California judicial system.  The California Constitution directs the council to improve the administration of justice by surveying judicial business, recommending improvements to the courts, and making recommendations annually to the Governor and the Legislature.  The council also adopts rules for court administration, practice, and procedure, and performs other functions prescribed by law.  The Judicial Council of California is the staff agency for the council and assists both the council and its chair in performing their duties.

The Judicial Council’s Criminal Justice Services (CJS) will coordinate this project. CJS, composed of legal, analytical and program staff, provides services and support to the Judicial Council and the courts. CJS serves the Judicial Council in fulfilling its policy, procedure, and court administrative obligations.

The Judicial Council is soliciting proposals from an individual person or an entity to conduct a qualitative study of counties that operate a Veterans Treatment Court (VTC) and an assessment of counties that do not operate a VTC. To fulfill the legislative mandate of Senate Bill 339, the Judicial Council seeks to understand better the barriers to establishing and operating a VTC in counties where none exist. It also aims to gain an understanding of recovery and rehabilitation services, other than VTCs, available to veterans or members of the military involved in the justice system who suffer from service-related disorders, substance use, or mental health disorders.
