He has served as the coordinator of that court since its inception in 2002 and also serves as the coordinator for four other MHCs, including the first two juvenile MHCs in the state. Mr. Olson received the Kramer Award from the Idaho Supreme Court in 2010 for Excellence in Judicial Administration for his leadership with MHCs. He serves as a consultant with both CSG and All Rise, working with treatment court programs throughout the country to implement evidence-based best practices.
