Judicial Assistance Services Program

Judicial Assistance Services Program (JASP) is a joint association (i.e. SCJA & DMCJA) committee involving judges from all court levels, i.e. superior court, district court and municipal court.  JASP was created in 2004 by a group of Washington state judges exploring how to get judicial officers confidential help and intervention when they need it.  Because of their unique positions and responsibilities, judges often find themselves with limited avenues for help.  JASP offers help from trained peer counselors, i.e. other judges, at no cost as well as referrals to confidential professional guidance.
