Veterans Services

Vet Handshake

Lakewood is a Veteran-Friendly Employer!

We foster an extremely supportive culture for Veterans, Reservists and members of the National Guard:

 

  • 9% of regular employees are veterans -- more than eight times the national average
  • Annual Veterans Recognition Day
  • Annual Veterans Fair with veterans service providers
  • Guard/Reserve accommodations to employment

 

Top these off with the ability to continue your service to our nation -- at the local level -- and you'll find Lakewood a great place to hang up your uniform!

Municipal Court Veterans Program

 

In recognition that returning veterans face unique problems related to their service and have earned special benefits that may help address them, the Lakewood Municipal Court Veterans Process (LMCVP) was established for veterans charged with criminal violations in Lakewood Municipal Court.
