Ohio Department of Veterans Services



Ohio Veterans' Courts
Courts throughout Ohio are implementing special Veterans’ Courts, where the emphasis is on treatment and diversion rather than punishment. The Ohio Department of Veterans Services has established effective working relationships with these courts in order to provide guidance and assistance on issues like sustainable funding and obtaining certification from the Ohio Supreme Court.
