HALL COUNTY, Neb. — Hall County Commissioners Tuesday approved funding and creating a new position: juvenile diversion alternative initiative (JDAI) coordinator.
The JDAI program looks for alternatives for detaining juveniles, which is “hugely expensive,” said Hall County Attorney Marty Klein.
County Commissioners in February approved creating the position contingent on the county receiving a juvenile services aid grant being offered by the Nebraska Crime Commission.
