The first Veterans Treatment Court (“VTC”) opened in 2004 and aimed to help veterans who ran afoul of the law. These problem-solving courts not only serve to treat the underlying issues many veterans suffer post-military service, but also hold veterans accountable. As a consequence of their incredible results, there are now over one hundred VTCs across the nation. Connecticut has none. This Note urges Connecticut to establish a VTC.
