Police First Responders Fact Sheet

The mission of the Veterans Justice Programs is to identify justice-involved Veterans and contact them through outreach, in order to facilitate access to VA services at the earliest possible point.  Veterans Justice Programs accomplish this by building and maintaining partnerships between VA and key elements of the criminal justice system.
