We welcome you to join in this celebration.

WHERE:      

Custer County Courtroom
Custer County Justice Center
604 Heritage Drive
Broken Bow, NE 6882

WHY:            

For problem-solving court graduates, the ceremony marks the completion of an intensive program of comprehensive behavioral health treatment, intensive community supervision, and full accountability. 

Problem-solving courts are an alternate route through the criminal justice system for nonviolent drug-related offenders, utilizing a specialized team process within the existing court structure. The courts are designed to reduce recidivism and substance use among individuals with substance use disorders. The court's goal is to protect public safety and increase the participant’s likelihood of successful rehabilitation by utilizing validated risk and need assessments, early and individualized behavioral health treatment, frequent and random chemical testing, incentives, sanctions, and other rehabilitative and ancillary services.

HOW:      

For interviews or additional information, please contact Doug Stanton, North Central Problem-Solving Court Coordinator, at (402) 340-3461 or at douglas.stanton@nebraska.gov.
