WASHINGTON, July 23, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Justice For Vets will host the 2015 Vet Court Con at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland, July 27-30th.

The event will kick off with keynote remarks from United States Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert McDonald.

Thousands of judges, prosecutors, defense attorneys, probation officers, volunteer Veteran Mentors, volunteer Veteran Mentor Coordinators, law enforcement officers, mental health and drug addiction treatment professionals, VA employees, and many others working in Veterans Treatment Court or with justice-involved veterans will attend this historic gathering.

“Justice For Vets enables the creation of a nationwide network of Veterans Treatment Courts that is transforming the way veterans are handled in the criminal justice system. In doing so we will keep veterans out of jail and prison; saving their lives, their families, and their futures, while saving tax dollars for the American public,” said Justice For Vets Senior Director Melissa Fitzgerald.

“We are expecting an unprecedented number of attendees at our 3rd annual Vet Court Con as the growth and reach of Veterans Treatment Courts continue to expand exponentially throughout the nation.”
