Therapeutic Courts

Community Court

Community Court is specialized docket held at the downtown Spokane Library (non-inmates) each Monday from 10:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and each Friday (inmates) at 8:30 a.m. in municipal courtroom A. The docket is composed of offenders who are charged with various nuisance / quality of life charges from events in the city's urban core. Using a combination of offender needs assessment, on-site wrap around social services and intensive case monitoring, the Community Court operates with the goal of assisting the offenders with getting the services they need to put their lives back on track and break the cycle of offense with the resulting recidivism rate for the urban core offender population.

Mental Health Court

Spokane Municipal Mental Health Court is operated in concert with the Spokane County District Court.

Veteran's Court

City of Spokane's Veteran's Court is a collaboration of numerous agencies: the Court, the VA, the Public Defender's Office, the Prosecutor's Office, the Probation Department, and many other community partners. These agencies, working together, have established a viable option for a select group of offenders whose needs are better met through treatment intervention rather than incarceration.

The mission of the City of Spokane Veteran's Court is to provide an interagency, collaborative, non-adversarial treatment strategy for veterans involved in the criminal justice system while holding them accountable and reintegrating veterans into the community.

The goals of the City of Spokane Veteran's Court are to:

  • Increase community/public safety and awareness.
  • Reduce participant contacts with the criminal justice system.
  • Reduce costs associated with criminal case processing and re-arrest.
  • Introduce participants to an ongoing process of recovery designed to help them become stable, employed and substance free while continuing mental health care through community/peer counseling groups or the VA
