Marion County Family Court is a part of the Juvenile Detention Alternatives Initiative (JDAI), and we are committed to ensuring that youth and families that are involved with our Court are treated with dignity and respect. Probation Department Officers play an important role at the Court, as we strive to adhere to JDAI principles.  Modern case management, case planning, and social work principles and practices must be applied in order to accomplish the Court’s goals, related to JDAI and restorative justice.
