The JDAI Coordinator is responsible for the coordination, management, and expansion of the local juvenile justice improvement initiative in Scott County, IN in cooperation and collaboration with the Juvenile Probation program in Scott County.

Casey Foundation’s Juvenile Detention Alternatives Initiative.

Successful implementation of these strategies is expected to reduce admissions, reduce lengths of stay, shorten case processing times, and increase non secure community based programs.
