Juvenile Detention Center
The juvenile detention center has a staff of 15 full-time security positions. The medical and mental health needs are provided by contracted personnel.
- The 17-bed facility was built in 1985. Detention officers are posted inside the housing unit dayrooms, directly supervising and observing the juveniles and their daily activities. Juveniles are housed in three different units. Two units house six juveniles each and the third houses four. Two of the housing units consist of a dayroom and six single-person cells. The remaining unit is comprised of four single-person cells.
