IndyBar: New Pause for Professionalism Video Available

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

In the newest installment of the IndyBar Professionalism Committee’s Pause for Professionalism video series, Marion County Deputy Prosecutor Kathy Infanger explains the purpose and role of the Marion County Community Court. This interesting installment will make the connection between the seminal 1982 article, “Broken Windows,” and present-day examples of successes in the Marion County Community Court.

The court was established in 2001 to address quality of life misdemeanor crimes in a creative and civilized manner outside the typical criminal justice process. The focus of the court is on crime prevention instead of simply solving crimes and punishing offenders. Kathy’s video goes into greater detail about the purpose of the Community Court; why it is important in our society; and why it furthers the interest of making Marion County a civilized community. Take five minutes to listen to this interesting and insightful video that will make you aware of a valuable community resource.

New videos will be distributed regularly and are available on the IndyBar website at indybar.org/videos. If you have any suggestions for future topics regarding professionalism and civility, please email them to Caren Chopp at cchopp@indybar.org.•
