We are bringing together judges and adjudicating authorities from state courts and the military who preside over impaired driving matters.

We'll discuss the available resources to address the conduct and to reduce the risks of recidivism through appropriate treatment. Military and veteran presenters will discuss terminology, jurisdiction, and administrative and criminal sanctions military members face as the result of an impaired driving event, whether that event occurs on a military installation or in the civilian community. We'll also address civilian sentencing and the impact on limited treatment resources when those services may already be imposed in the military system. The outreach will include a discussion of the consequences of the newly announced "Deploy or Out" policy in the military and the impact of probationary sentences on a military member's deployment status.

Participants will exchange ideas and formulate an action plan to coordinate the provision of services to ensure cost-effective delivery of treatment services for military members, veterans and their family members using federal funds to cover costs when and where available.

This is a full-day community coordination program that's part of NJC’s military deliverables under NHTSA

What will I learn?

During this course, you will learn to:

  • Establish a common vocabulary and explanation of acronyms common to addressing cases where a military member (active duty, Guard or Reserve), is involved in an impaired driving event.
  • Inform participants about the reality that Active duty, Guard and Reserve personnel are more likely to have their cases resolved in civilian jurisdictions than military jurisdictions with respect to impaired driving due to the exclusive federal, exclusive state and concurrent jurisdiction arrangements in most CONUS situations.
  • Outline for the participants the administrative and treatment consequences of an impaired driving arrest whether in exclusive federal, exclusive state or concurrent jurisdiction.
  • Discuss the administrative consequences relating to deployment, separation, reenlistment, of sanctions such as driver's license suspension, probation, and referral to treatment programs.
  • Explain the available resources for assessment and treatment related to impaired driving events for military members, veterans and the family members of military members through Social Actions, military and Veterans Administration facilities.
