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