Marion Superior judges this week will visit two suburban Chicago criminal justice complexes as Indianapolis officials proceed with plans to build a jail and criminal courts complex west of the downtown mile square.

About a half-dozen judges are expected to take a day trip Friday to tour the DuPage County Courthouse and Administration Building in Wheaton, Ill., and the Kane County Judicial Center in Geneva, Ill. Judges previously visited the new Wake County Justice Center in Raleigh, N.C.

During a meeting of the general term of Marion Superior judges Monday, Kurt Fullbeck from the office of Mayor Greg Ballard told judges that the timeline for a Marion County criminal justice complex remains on track.

Ballard and Marion County Sheriff John Layton back a proposal to build a criminal justice complex on a portion of the former General Motors stamping plant west of White River and south of Washington Street.

Fullbeck said the three short-listed project candidate teams have undergone industry reviews and the city expects to release an official request for proposals this month. That would keep the project on track for a final proposal to be presented to judges and the City/County Council this fall.

While the project has no official price tag, officials have said it’s likely to cost several hundred million dollars. Officials expect savings from elimination of inefficiencies and duplication of services would fund the cost of the building.

  2. It's an appreciable step taken by the government to curb the child abuse that are happening in the schools. Employees in the schools those are selected without background check can not be trusted. A thorough background check on the teachers or any other other new employees must be performed to choose the best and quality people. Those who are already employed in the past should also be checked for best precaution. The future of kids can be saved through this simple process. However, the checking process should be conducted by the help of a trusted background checking agency(https://www.affordablebackgroundchecks.com/).

  5. My parents took advantage of the fact that I was homeless in 2012 and went to court and got Legal Guardianship I my 2 daughters. I am finally back on my feet and want them back, but now they want to fight me on it. I want to raise my children and have them almost all the time on the weekends. Mynparents are both almost 70 years old and they play favorites which bothers me a lot. Do I have a leg to stand on if I go to court to terminate lehal guardianship? My kids want to live with me and I want to raise them, this was supposed to be temporary, and now it is turning into a fight. Ridiculous
