Arizona Problem Solving Courts Conference


Doug Hopple, Site Supervisor of the Prescott TASC office, and Catalina Arias, Northern Arizona Regional Manager, recently attended the Arizona Problem Solving Courts Conference held in Prescott, Arizona. Participants of the conference were able to join together with probation and parole staff, judges, attorneys, behavioral health providers, social workers, law enforcement, and problem solving court coordinators for education on how they can better serve those throughout Arizona who have involvement with problem solving courts.

TASC’s very own Heather Boelter, Training Specialist I, presented an informative session called Drug Testing: Answers To Frequently Asked Questions And New Drug Trends.   The presentation covered various topics including collection procedures, how people attempt to beat a test, and the constant evolution of spice among other things.  Those in attendance were provided a wealth of information on common topics they encounter as well as given the chance to ask questions all throughout the session.

This conference gave us the opportunity to speak with people from all over the state and let them know the services that TASC has to offer. Taking part in this kind of conference reinforces our relationship with those involved in the Problem Solving Courts and the communities we serve.
