Program History:

In April 2014 Senior Judge John C. Reed established the Mercer County Veterans Treatment Court to effectively address the needs of veterans cycling through the court and justice system. This court represents a collaboration between the Court of Common Pleas, the District Attorney’s Office, the Public Defender’s Office, the County Department of Veterans Affairs, and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).


Mercer County Veterans Treatment Court Mission Statement:

To assist and support veterans through a coordinated effort among the court, VA and community-based services and to promote public safety through accountability and responsibility.
