ACEs in the Criminal Justice System

Discussion and sharing of resources in working with clients involved in the criminal justice system and how screening for and treating ACEs will lead to successful re-entry of prisoners into the community and reduced recidivism for former offenders.

Not necessarily in a "court report," but a formal conversation with judges in one of the counties I work in was had, where ACE's was explained. I would easily now say that these judges could be considered much more "trauma informed," and while not using actual ACE scores, they are being more mindful of sentencing and exploring alternatives to incarceration when they can.
