Drug Courts Offer a Second Chance

In Drug Courts Offer a Second Chance, Katharine T. Sullivan, Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General (PDAAG), highlights how drug courts are not only a solid investment in public safety, they’re also a vehicle for personal transformation.

PDAAG Sullivan focuses on the various ways BJA and the other Office of Justice Programs (OJP) bureaus and offices support drug court efforts and the mission of drug courts. For example, last year, OJP awarded more than $83 million to support drug courts.
