Law enforcement is often the first point of contact Americans have with the justice system. For those at risk of substance dependence, this can be a key interaction affecting future treatment. Approximately 1.5 million individuals arrested each year are at such a risk, and our National Drug Resource Center is hosting a webinar Wednesday, June 13, 2018, from 2:00 to 3:00 PM to examine how law enforcement can be an integral tool in treatment courts' efforts.  

"To Serve, Protect, and Treat: Law Enforcement and Treatment Courts"   brings together practitioners and experts who will discuss ways to partner with local law enforcement and engage them in the treatment court process. This means not only educating them about how treatment courts operate but giving them the tools to advocate for these programs every day in the field to those who need them.
