New Local Drug Court

Amarillo, TX - A new court targeting high risk offenders is now in Amarillo. It is the first and only multi-jurisdiction drug court in the state of Texas.

It will largely target at-risk offenders on probation who have a high chance of relapsing.

The court will also identify drug court candidates early on in the criminal proceedings process.

The Bureau of Justice Assistance awarded Potter, Randall and Armstrong counties a grant based on drug related crimes and arrests in our area.

They received a $350,000 grant to fund this court.
