Juvenile Detention Center Parent Information


Visitation Policy During COVID-19 Pandemic

In a effort to reduce the chances of COVID-19 from spreading within our facility, in person visitation has been suspended until further notice.  Parents/guardians can schedule two twenty minute visitations per week not to be done on consecutive days, via teleconference.  Teleconference visitations will be scheduled with the control room staff, during normal phone call hours, or during other hours of the day which fit best with daily facility schedules.  Counselors/teachers/ministers may use teleconference by scheduling times with the control room staff for whatever amount of time is necessary as long as it does not disrupt facility schedules.  Parents/guardians can increase phone calls  from 2 calls a week to 4 if they chose not to use the teleconference option.

Regular Schedule After Covid-19:
Sunday 2:15 P.M. - 4:00 P.M.
Wednesday 7:15 P.M. - 8:15 P.M.
