Let There Be Light
For the first time, Huston explored the diagnosis and treatment of what used to be called "battle fatigue" or "shell shock" among returning servicemen. This condition is now know as PTSD - post traumatic stress disorder. "Let There Be Light" wasn't released to the public for 30 years for obvious reasons, but it's a story that must be told because it's still highly relevant to our times. It appears Veterans of WW II were much better cared for than today.
The Justice Involved Veteran (JIV) Program works to improve veteran services across the entire criminal justice continuum. The JIV Coordinators serve as resource to provide technical assistance and training to all Veteran Treatment Courts across Texas.
The JIV Program also partners with the local and state law enforcement to deliver officers relevant trainings such as trauma affected veterans and crisis intervention strategies. JIV Coordinators also collaborate with the local jail and state prison systems to better ensure that incarcerated veterans have access to veteran-specific services and programming.
Commissioners Court meets at 10:00 each Tuesday. The Commissioners must approve a Veterans Treatment Court.
