Juvenile Detention Center


The present site opened as a 32 bed facility in January of 1992.  The capacity of this building was expanded to 48 beds in the fall of 1995.  The building contains activity rooms, a kitchen, a dining room (which also serves as the visitation area), classrooms, laundry, gymnasium and an outdoor recreation area.  All minors stay in separate rooms except during overcrowding conditions when the gymnasium and common areas are utilized for sleeping facilities.  A conscious effort was made in the overall design of the Detention Center to reduce the obtrusiveness of the necessary institution features.  It has been recognized by local architects for its outstanding design and the facility has served as a model for others which have been constructed throughout the nation.
