The Oklahoma County Veteran’s Program (OCVP), is a diversion program designed to
divert veterans involved with the criminal justice system from prison, to reduce
veteran’s involvement in future crimes, and place them into appropriate rehabilitative
alternatives. The program is for veterans who are currently facing prosecution for
one or more criminal cases. The program offers offenders a treatment option that
is supervised by the OCVP team.
The OCVP is only for veterans of the Armed Forces of the United States as defined
by federal law. The OCVP is a program coupled with intensive treatment and supervision
for veteran criminal offenders. Once the veteran has been screened, assessed, and
approved for participation in the program, he/she will promptly begin a treatment
program that is specific to his/her needs. The OCVP is a voluntary program, which
includes weekly formation with the OCVP team and other participants. It also involves
drug and alcohol treatment, random drug testing, support group meetings, vocational
or job counseling, educational classes and community supervision. Upon successful
completion of the program, the case(s) are normally dismissed or never filed. In
the event the agreement is terminated, the case(s) are remanded to the court of
origin for continued prosecution.
The OCVP program aims to provide veterans with the tools they need to lead a productive
and law-abiding lifestyle while improving mental health recovery and successful
re-entry into the community, along with resolution of their criminal case(s).
