Seventeenth Judicial Circuit Community Court Anniversary
Broward Health Comprehensive Care Center and Broward Health On the Go collaborated to conduct confidential HIV testing at Fort Lauderdale City Hall, celebrating the one year anniversary of the 17th Judicial Circuit Community Court. The 17th Judicial Circuit Community Court works closely with The City of Fort Lauderdale, Broward County, the State Attorney’s Office, the Office of the Public Defender and the Broward Sheriff’s Office to develop the program, and a number of public and private service providers signed on to provide services to participants in Community Court. Held every Wednesday morning at City Hall in Fort Lauderdale, Community Court focuses on the root causes of each defendant’s issues, applying appropriate therapeutic and community service based punishments. Participants must choose to take an active role in their rehabilitation, and agree to give back to the community in the form of community service, once their situation is stable.
