Probation officer salaries. Allows a court having probation jurisdiction to apply to the judicial conference of Indiana for state financial assistance to be used for probation officer salaries and benefits. Applies only to courts administering probation that meet or exceed all of the minimum standards adopted by the judicial conference of Indiana. Limits the financial assistance for probation officer salaries to 50% of the minimum cost of salaries for not more than the number of probation officers required by the minimum standards adopted by the conference. Eliminates the requirement that the budget committee approve the salaries and benefits. Allows counties to appropriate funds for probation positions and services. Allows a county fiscal body to make temporary loans to a court for the payment of probation officer salaries and benefits in anticipation of and not in excess of any amount of financial aid that has been approved by the judicial conference of Indiana for the probation officer salaries and benefits.
