Protocols have been developed by the National Association of Drug Court Professionals (NADCP) to assist individuals who want to visit a mentor court site.
In recent years, the NADCP Mentor Drug Court Network has provided important services to the drug court field. The NADCP has created an education, training, and technical assistance system for the Mentor Drug Court Network that maximizes the use of practitioners and relies on their experience, insights, and expertise. The Mentor Drug Court Network is based on the premise that local drug courts represent the most logical place to educate and train drug court practitioners who are planning or implementing drug courts in their own jurisdictions. With help from the Office of Justice Programs Drug Courts Program Office, the NADCP has developed protocols to enhance the quality of technical assistance delivered through the Mentor Drug Court Network. The protocols involve three basic steps: (1) complete a visitor request form; (2) confirm visit; and (3) evaluate visit. Brief descriptions of 15 mentor drug court programs in New York, Florida, Louisiana, Michigan, California, Kentucky, Connecticut, Nevada, Washington, and Oklahoma are presented.
