SALT LAKE CITY May 27, 2016 – Utah Assistant Attorney General Scott Reed was honored this week by Salt Lake County for his role with Utah’s drug courts over the last two decades. Started in 1995 after Reed attended a drug court conference with Greg Skordas and Craig Bunker in 1995, drug courts were started to help reduce recidivism and improve the lives of those facing addiction.
“The work that Scott Reed has done with the drug courts—from helping to start the program to developing it over the last twenty years—has helped change the lives of thousands of people,” said Attorney General Sean Reyes. “By helping drug court participants—high risk, high-need individuals with addiction problems—stay clean and beat their addictions, the drug courts help individuals transform their lives for good and positively re-integrate with society instead of relegating them to incarceration or likely re-offense without any healing or addiction recovery. Scott is well-deserving of recognition for his efforts, and we congratulate him for his decades of service.”
