Editor's Note: "This is Your Government Speaking" is an unusual project in that it enables a straight, unfiltered line of communication from the desk of John Bartholomew, a public information officer at the Indianapolis Department of Metropolitan Development. This is a pure, undiluted stream of information straight from city government and a re-assigned radioman who pitches way more stories than we can possibly process - and who found a solution by interviewing government employees about the programs and projects they think make good stories.
John Bartholomew of the Indianapolis Department of Metropolitan Development interviews Marion Superior Court Presiding Judge David Certo and DMD Grant Manager Julie Fidler to explore the topic of community courts, discussing how public officials are working to achieve greater access to mental health and medical services.
