All veterans are invited to join the official dedication ceremony of the Nassau County Courts Veterans Part on Thursday, Nov. 10, at 11 a.m. This innovative program is a cooperative effort led by Nassau County Administrative Judge Anthony Marano, designed to provide specialized services and resources to assist veterans involved in the Nassau County criminal justice system.
The Veterans Part is tailored to address unique challenges facing servicemen and women who are charged with nonviolent offenses. By facilitating alternative sentencing programs, which include treatment services, counseling and mentor relationships, veterans are given the opportunity to address the struggles they face in assimilating when they return home.
The ceremony will be held in the Central Jury Room of New York State Supreme Court, 100 Supreme Court Drive, Mineola.
