DWI Courts

Beyond these policies, WSWA has joined forces with the National Center for DWI Courts (NCDC) to promote best practices for DWI Courts and promote the wider use of these effective treatment programs for serious and repeat offenders.

Often referred to as “accountability courts,” DWI Courts are designed to treat high-risk drivers by holding them accountable for their actions in a judicially supervised rehabilitation program. In these special courts, judges, prosecutors, defense attorneys, law enforcement and treatment experts work together to develop the most effective treatment for each offender—with proven results.

WSWA supports the wider use of these effective treatment courts to address the challenges created by serious and repeat DUI offenders.
