Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $350,000)

The purpose of the Drug Court Discretionary Grant Program (42 U.S.C. 3797u et seq.) is to provide financial and technical assistance to states, state courts, local courts, units of local government, and Indian tribal governments to develop and implement drug treatment courts that effectively integrate substance abuse treatment, mandatory drug testing, sanctions and incentives, and transitional services in a judicially supervised court setting with jurisdiction over nonviolent, substance-abusing offenders. The FY 2010 Adult Drug Court Discretionary Grant Program will provide grant funds to jurisdictions to implement or enhance a local drug court or to improve, enhance, expand, or financial support drug court services statewide.

Kenosha County will use the grant funds to implement the Kenosha County Drug and Alcohol Treatment Court, an adult drug court to assist non-violent offenders with successful rehabilitation from the use of drugs and alcohol. The intent of the drug court is to reduce recidivism and substance abuse while promoting public safety by providing timely court intervention, screening, and assessment to non-violent substance abusing offenders. Kenosha County will also conduct a process evaluation as well as an outcome evaluation.
