In 2012, Bernalillo County Metropolitan Court, under the leadership of Judge Sandra Engel, partnered with the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Albuquerque VA Medical Center to implement a Veterans Program. Judge Engel assembled a team of criminal justice, treatment, and VA professionals that began meeting on a monthly basis to discuss Veteran defendants in Bernalillo County who were facing criminal charges or were struggling to meet their probation requirements. The team soon learned first-hand how partnering with the VA and Veteran community resources was necessary in the effort to break down barriers and improve the identification and meeting the specialized needs of Veterans.


Mission Statement

The Mission of the Bernalillo County Metropolitan Community Veterans Court is to enhance public safety by providing a judicially supervised program with substance abuse and mental health treatment with the goal of returning Veterans to the community as healthy law abiding citizens.
