Clerk & Comptroller’s Office Supporting Upcoming Outreach Event for Veterans
Veterans who have pending court cases or traffic infractions may be able to get their cases resolved by speaking with Court and Clerk’s office representatives during a veterans outreach event this Saturday in Riviera Beach.
The First Annual Stand Down event is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 4, at the Dan Calloway “Tate” Recreation Center, 1420 W. 10th St., Riviera Beach. It is sponsored by Faith Hope Love Charity, Inc., a non-profit organization providing assistance to soldiers, veterans and their families to reach out to veterans in need.
Representatives from Palm Beach County’s Veterans Court will hear veterans’ cases on pending charges such as driving under the influence, trespassing, failure to appear and public drunkenness. Court and clerk representatives also will be available to answer questions on other pending cases. Veterans Court, established in Palm Beach County last November, is a court program tailored to the special needs of veterans. It directs veterans charged with crimes to VA programs like substance abuse counseling, mental health reviews, and even housing options.
The Stand Down event will also offer veterans health screenings, food, music and more. For additional information, visit standown.org or call 561-968-1612.
