Legislator Susan A. Berland Welcomes The Suffolk County Veterans Court To Veterans Committee

Veterans Court Presentation

HAUPPAUGE, NY – Suffolk County Legislator Susan A. Berland (D-Dix Hills), Chairwoman of the Legislature’s Veterans Committee, welcomed Edward Gialella, Project Director of the Suffolk County Veterans Court to present before the Veterans Committee on July 10th. The Suffolk County Veterans Court is a specialized part of the Suffolk County District and County Criminal Courts. It provides a means to successfully help veterans by diverting them from the traditional criminal justice system. The Veterans Court offers veterans a chance to address their problems or issues through treatment, rehabilitative programming, reinforcement and judicial monitoring. If they successfully complete the program, the veteran’s charge will be reduced or dismissed. “I was honored to have the Project Director of the Veterans Court present before the Veterans Committee,” said Legislator Berland.  “I want to thank everyone at the Veterans Court for all they do to help our veterans through intervention, mentoring and treatment. Please contact my office if you are interested in becoming a volunteer peer mentor or if you need any further information on the Veterans Court.”
