Veterans in the Criminal Justice System


A new study, “Criminal Justice Involvement of Armed Force Veterans in Two Systems of Care,” compared criminal justice involvement of veterans before and after receiving services from community-based programs of the Veterans Health Administration or a state Department of Mental Health. The study found veterans who received mental health services had a reduction in criminal justice charges.
