Program Description

Byrne JAG provides support to the State Court Administrative Office to fund 15 drug courts that target non-violent probation violators and non-violent straddle or presumptive cell felony offenders who, based on Michigan Sentencing Guidelines, are otherwise bound for prison. Drug courts offer an integrated, systematic approach to dealing with substance-abusing offenders. The drug courts are evidence-based and have been found to substantially reduce drug use and recidivism while offenders are in the program.
