DWI Courts using exemplary practices serve as models for other DWI Courts.
Now Accepting DWI Academy Court Applications
All Applications are Due September 15th, 2016 by 5 p.m. EST.
In 2011, NADCP, in partnership with NHTSA, created four "DWI Academy Courts." These courts, located across the country, are recognized by NADCP as DWI Courts that use exemplary practices. These courts will:
- Serve as role models for other DWI Courts;
- Be used to create learning and training for newly created DWI Courts;
- Provide ongoing mentoring with DWI Courts in their region; and
- Be a research platform for the development, identification, and testing of improved DWI Court practices.
Before they were selected, the courts went through a rigorous evaluation process competing against other DWI Courts from across the country. They will be a DWI Academy Court for a three year period. The four courts are:
Athens Clarke County DWI Court - Athens, Georgia
Harbor Justice Center and West Justice Center - Newport Beach, California
DWI Drug Court Intervention and Treatment Program - El Paso, Texas
Hennepin County DWI Court of the 4th Judicial District - Minneapolis, Minnesota
