Empowering and inspiring Courts and communities to deliver transformative justice.

Wisconsin Association of Treatment Court Professionals (WATCP) is a professional organization representing the interests of treatment courts in the State of Wisconsin. WATCP’s multidisciplinary membership includes judges, prosecutors, defense attorneys, court administrators, treatment providers, probation and community corrections officers, social service caseworkers, and other stakeholders in the field of treatment courts.

The core mission of the WATCP is to reduce substance abuse, crime and recidivism by promoting and advocating the establishment and funding of treatment courts and providing for collection and dissemination of information, technical assistance and mutual support to association members.

It is the design of the WATCP to associate with and/or work closely with other Wisconsin criminal justice or treatment organizations focusing on improving local justice system management and community corrections alternatives.
