Juvenile Detention Center
Overview
Lucas County Juvenile Detention Center (JDC) provides temporary detention for delinquent youth. The function of JDC is two-fold:
  • To provide temporary, secure detention for youth who present a danger to themselves or to the community, or who may abscond pending the disposition of cases
  • To coordinate social, psychological, and psychiatric evaluations of children in order to assist and advise the Court regarding the disposition of cases

Policy and procedures within JDC are guided by compliance with Federal and State law. During 2015, JDC had 1,581 bookings (youth brought to the facility by law enforcement) and 1,147 admissions (youth detained overnight in the facility). More information regarding bookings and admissions may be found in the statistical section of this report, along with data from prior years.
