Sample Policy and Procedure Handbook: Felony Drug Court
This manual is a work in progress.  It is for courts to be able to use as a guideline for their manuals. The contents of this manual is a collaboration from other felony courts manuals, the "Standards for Accountability Courts", and various findings from the web on accountability courts.  This is a Felony Drug Court Sample;  however, some of the content found can be applied to other courts.  Any and all input to make this manual better is welcome.  Again, this manual is not a requirement for courts to use, but is only suggestion.
