General Summary:
    This is a highly responsible administrative position responsible for helping the
Judicial Branch establish, maintain, staff, coordinate, operate, and evaluate specialty dockets and pilot projects in the Trial Courts; soliciting and administering grants and grant funding; and maintaining the specialty docket efforts statewide and within the Judicial Branch.

    The incumbent works closely with the Chief Justice of the Superior Court, the Chief Judge and Deputy Chief Judge of the District Court, Justices, Judges, members of the Administrative Team, Judicial Branch grant accountants, Court Clerks, and other local, county, state, federal, and private agencies.

    Specialty dockets in Maine are defined as dockets with intensive and regular judicial oversight, specialized treatment and case management services if indicated, strict accountability and behavior management of participants, and management by multidisciplinary teams led by the presiding judicial officer.   Currently, the State of Maine operates Adult Drug Treatment Courts, a Co-Occurring Disorders and Veterans Treatment Court, Domestic Violence Judicial Monitoring Dockets and Family Treatment Drug Courts. These dockets are located in various locations across the State.  The goals of these dockets include reducing alcohol and drug abuse and dependency among criminal offenders, supporting recovery from substance abuse, mental illness and co-occurring disorders, reducing criminal recidivism, increasing the personal, familial and societal accountability of offenders, promoting healthy and safe family relationships, promoting effective interaction and use of resources among justice system personnel and federal, state and community agencies and reducing the overcrowding of prisons and jails. The dockets also encourage the adoption of pro-social attitudes and behaviors and the promotion of healthy societal relationships.   These goals all lead to improved public safety. 

At times, specialty dockets are referred to in statute, grant solicitations, or informally by the public with different labels, including, but not limited to, specialty courts, problem-solving courts, rehabilitation programs, judicial monitoring projects or diversion programs or projects.
