The Greenwood City Court has jurisdiction over misdemeanors and infractions allegedly occurring anywhere in Johnson County, as well as alleged violations of Greenwood city ordinances. The Court operates full-time and hears 1,200-1,500 misdemeanors and 4,000-6,000 infractions and ordinances each year.
The Greenwood City Court is the only city court in Indiana that operates a state-certified Problem Solving Court, an Alcohol and Drug Services Program or Veterans Court. Greenwood Recovery Court was the first drug court in the U.S. to be state-certified. The Recovery Court was also one of the first "hybrid" drug courts in the nation, accepting drunk driving defendants as well as traditional drug offenders.
To operate these specialized programs, the judge and the staff of the Greenwood City Court have completed hundreds of hours of specialized training.
No city tax dollars are used to support any of these programs. All are funded by fees paid by participants in the programs or federal and state grants.
The Greenwood City Court also handles other kinds of misdemeanors, such as theft, motor vehicle cases, public disturbances, along with traffic violations.
