“Ada County Domestic Violence Court Selected as National Model

Ada County is in Southwestern Idaho, and includes Boise. From the article:

The Ada County court, established seven years ago, follows a “one family-one judge” practice that involves the judge in daily, weekly or monthly review hearings of the offender; brings in a team including a prosecutor, victim witness coordinator, public defender, probation officers, court coordinator and treatment providers; and focuses on defendant accountability and victim safety. It also averages 58 days from arrest to sentencing, compared to about 131 days in a traditional criminal court.
