BACKGROUND: 

The mission of the Clark County Felony DUI Court Program is to enhance public safety and reduce recidivism by combining effective substance abuse treatment and intensive judicial supervision in a therapeutic court setting for non-violent, chronic DUI offenders, in order to assist the participant in choosing and developing a structured, disciplined, law abiding alcohol and drug free way of life.

The primary goal of the project is to keep the Felony DUI team on the forefront of best practices, sharpen FDUI Court skills, and keep abreast of successful strategies used in other jurisdictions. RISE21 reflects the “must have” content for treatment court professionals. The conference brings together judges, law enforcement officials, treatment providers, drug and veterans court coordinators, researchers, probation officers, attorneys, consumer advocates, and experts in the treatment court field who will provide usable answers to pressing questions on best practices in DUI Court and other related specialty court areas. The ability to attend this training will allow the FDUI Court to continue to implement and sustain best practices for working with FDUI participants.

The grant provides $8,080.00 for the training and travel of four FDUI team members to attend the NADCP Rise 21 Conference.
