Visit the country's best treatment courts

Until further notice, all mentor court visits will be conducted virtually. Complete the site visit application and NDCI staff will work with you to ensure you get the most out of your visit.

Three Ways to Learn from the Best

In-Person Visit

In-person visits are suspended until further notice.

Virtual Visit

Observe one of our mentor court's operations through video conference.

Professional Shadowing

Work one-on-one with a treatment court professional in a specific discipline to better understand that role on the team.

How It Works

Complete the application telling us about you and/or your court program. NDCI staff will schedule a time with you to discuss further and plan your visit.

All mentor court visitors are required to complete a brief online evaluation upon completion of the visit or shadowing. Based on feedback from the evaluation, NDCI staff will determine what, if any, further training or technical assistance is required.

This program is made possible by the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) within the Office of Justice Programs at the U.S. Department of Justice.
