The Shelby County Regional Juvenile Detention Center
We are fortunate to have a detention center for our youth in our county. The Shelby County Regional Juvenile Detention Center is a 34-bed facility. Staff in that facility are trained to deal with children with behavior issues and children in crisis.
When our children are detained, they will receive the best care possible and will remain in our county pending the judicial outcome. Our children receive a wellness assessment from a mental health professional to ascertain their current state and recommendations for services needed.
If your child is detained for an extended amount of time, more than three days, your child will receive educational services from the educators assigned to the Detention Center.
