State grants are being sought for Henry County’s accountability courts.

The Henry County Board of Commissioners approved the County’s Accountability Court Program to make application for a grant from the Criminal Justice Coordinating Council for Fiscal Year 2019 to help fund the Adult Felony Court Program, the Mental Health Court Program and a new Veterans Treatment Court Program.

A Veterans Treatment Court would provide a program and practices for individuals who have struggled with life after serving in the United States military. Many veterans were in attendance at the March 20 meeting to support the action and guests from a Cobb County Veterans Court addressed the board to share a testimony in the success of the program there, according to officials.

The vote was unanimous.
