Statistical Update on Lincoln County Crime and Specialty Courts
January 16 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Presented by Michelle Branam, D.A. Lincoln County This presentation begins with an update on the District Attorney’s Office and moves on to the Specialty Courts. An example of a Specialty Court would be the Drug Court Program which uses evidence-based problem-solving strategies designed to address the root causes of criminal activity and substance use disorders by coordinating efforts of the judiciary, prosecution, defense, probation, law enforcement, and treatment. Drug Court offers non-violent offenders an alternative to incarceration and teaches participants to become productive, law-abiding citizens which reduces recidivism and provides for healthier families and communities.
