Tuesday, May 4th
(May 4th) -- The Utah County Commissioners proclaimed May as "Drug Court Month" for the Utah County Division of Substance Abuse.
Drug courts have been proven as effective tools to reduce substance abuse, crime, child abuse and neglect, and juvenile delinquency in communities across the nation for the past 21 years. In Utah County, the 4th District Court and the 4th District Juvenile Court have been operating drug court programs for 13 years.
A presentation was made to the Utah County Commissioners in their regular meeting, when they also signed the Proclamation. Drug court graduates and alumni were also part of the presentation and took questions from the Commissioners and public.
