Youth Adult Court Holds

If a child is under 18 and has been waived to Adult Court we can still provide services for them since they are under 18.  

Program Philosophy

  1.  The integrity of the security and safety of residents is of paramount importance.

  2. Respect for each individual, despite the reason for placement in detention and despite behavior, it is basic.

  3. While detention is not treatment, this time of crisis in a young person’s life may also be a time when s/he is most receptive to learning skills, receiving information necessary for making better choices, and rethinking delinquent values.

  4. Staff unafraid to be role models and interact with residents in a positive and guiding way can be instrumental in the process of behavioral change for some youth.

  5. Management of behavior requires that all youth be held accountable for detrimental behavior toward them and others and those efforts toward acceptable behavior are recognized and encouraged.
