Justice-involved veterans are former service members who have been detained or are under the supervision of the criminal justice system. Over 100,000 veterans are currently in the custody of federal or state prisons. Connecting veterans to legal services or preventative resources at the earliest possible point can make a major difference in the lives of our veterans and their families. To learn more about justice-involved veterans, check out these resources. To suggest a resource, please email email@example.com.
Veterans Affairs’ Veterans Justice Outreach Program
The mission of the Veterans Justice Programs is to identify justice-involved Veterans and contact them through outreach, in order to facilitate access to Veterans Affairs (VA) services at the earliest possible point. Veterans Justice Programs accomplish this by building and maintaining partnerships between VA and key elements of the criminal justice system.
