Ohio Specialized Dockets Practitioner Network

OSDPN Sub-Network Meetings

What is the Ohio Specialized Dockets Practitioner Network?

Since the establishment of the Hamilton County Drug Court in 1995, Ohio has established itself as a national leader in the implementation of specialized dockets. With more than 150 specialized docket programs in operation throughout Ohio, the Supreme Court of Ohio has recognized the need for interaction among the professionals who staff these courts. In order to provide such a forum, the Ohio Specialized Dockets Network was created to provide peer support and technical assistance to these programs.

The Ohio Specialized Docket Network consists of three sub-networks of specialized docket professionals organized by discipline. These include: judges and/or magistrates, program coordinators, and probation officers. These sub-network meetings allow specialized docket practitioners to discuss the challenges and successes they have faced in their specific role on the specialized docket court team. In addition, the sub-network meetings offer opportunities for specialized docket professionals to provide program updates, discuss program operations, and discover innovative and effective strategies employed by other specialized dockets. Sub-network personnel also identify their training needs to the staff of the Supreme Court.

The Ohio Specialized Dockets Annual Conference

The 11th Annual Specialized Dockets Conference, scheduled for November 20, 2014 at the Ohio State University Fawcett Center in Columbus, Ohio, will offer national speakers and several breakout sessions on a wide-range of topics pertinent to specialized docket programs. The conference attracts more than 450 attendees from across the state, which enables participants to open communication and establish relationships with professionals in other counties. In addition to offering continuing legal education hours, all other appropriate accreditations will be applied for through the Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services.
