New to the NIC Website: Justice-Involved Veterans
NIC News & Updates


Recently added to the National Institute of Corrections (NIC) website is our new web page focusing on Justice-Involved Veterans.   On any given day, veterans account for nine of every hundred individuals in U.S. jails and prisons (Noonan & Mumola, 2007; Greenberg & Rosenheck, 2008). This web page has been developed in an effort to provide current and useful information to correctional agencies regarding the population of justice-involved veterans.  Highlighted on the web page are two NIC projects: the Veterans Treatment Court Project and the Veterans Risk and Needs Assessment Tool and Protocol Project.
