Changes to this Juvenile Detention Center and Family Courts Facility consisted of renovation to 40,000 square feet of existing space and the addition of 50,000 square feet of new space, providing 88 secure beds and new program areas. The new facility is better equipped to meet the needs of residents and provides the appropriate environment for staff to provide effective, restorative rehabilitation of the State’s youth. 

After initial work was complete, a second phase converted existing space into courtroom, probation and social service functions. Increasing the overall size and functional effectiveness of the Center provides employees with more flexible and functional workspaces. The new Center has helped to boost morale and create a positive and constructive environment for both the juveniles and employees.
