The purposes of this report are twofold: (1) to characterize the ways in which treatment resources are coordinated for offenders within the problem solving courts of the Los Angeles Superior Court system; and (2) to examine the views of various stakeholders within the court system regarding problem solving courts, with particular emphasis on the resource coordination process. Of particular interest are issues such as whether stakeholders regard alternative courts as providing equitable sanctions vis-à-vis traditional courts, whether services-based programs are perceived to work better to prevent recidivism than more traditional sanctions, and the degree to which stakeholders believe that various problems exist with provision of services in these courts.
