“To give the public a voice and to ensure confidence the justice system, the District Court opened the process of public comment for hearing masters,” said Eighth Judicial District Court Chief Judge David Barker. “Opening the comment process has proven to be an effective way to give the community a opportunity to have a hand in vetting those who will serve.”

Specialty courts solve issues through a rigorous and coordinated approach between judges, prosecutors, defense attorneys, Parole and Probation, law enforcement and mental health/social service/treatment professionals. All work together to help participants recover, live crime-free and become productive citizens. The National Association of Drug Court Professionals reports: “nationwide, 75 percent of drug court graduates remain arrest-free at least two years after leaving the program. Drug courts reduce crime as much as 35 percent more than other sentencing options.”
