CHECK DECEPTION

 

Local merchants and private individuals in receipt of checks returned for insufficient funds or on a closed account are provided direction and assistance for collection. In the event payment is not received after notice, criminal charges may be filed.

 

CRIMINAL DIVISION

 

The Criminal Division handles felony and misdemeanor prosecutions which includes everything from Illegal Consumption of Alcohol to Capital Murder.

 

SAFE DRIVER DEFERRAL PROGRAM

 

The purpose of this voluntary program is to allow motorists who have a good driving record to maintain that record.

 

INVESTIGATIVE DIVISION

 

This unit is comprised an investigators who receive and follow up on criminal complaints made by the public which are not handled by local law enforcement agencies. Criminal charges may arise from these complaints.

 

JUVENILE DIVISION

 

Indiana Law generally requires that crimes committed by those under the age of eighteen years to be treated separately from adults. A child under eighteen years of age who commits a crime or is considered truant, runaway, incorrigible, or has committed a delinquent act may have a delinquency petition filed in Juvenile Court.

 

PRE-TRIAL DIVERSION PROGRAM

 

The Pre-Trial Diversion Program was established to allow misdemeanor offenders who have no criminal record an opportunity to keep their records clear. Requirements to successfully complete PTD normally include staying free of additional charges, doing community service, and enrolling and completing counseling.

 

VICTIM/WITNESS ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

 

The Victim/Witness Assistance Program serves as an advocate for victims - keeping them informed on the progress of their cases through the criminal justice system, assisting in the application for crime victim compensation and acting as a liaison with other social service agencies.
