The Diana Screen® is a sexual risk screening test to protect children. It is a computerized test that takes approximately 30 minutes to complete and is administered by the Human Resources department of the Florida Parishes Juvenile Detention Center.


The Diana Screen® helps to identify candidates who may step over a sexual boundary line with children or teens or who may present a sexual risk.

WHY DOES Florida Parishes Juvenile Detention Center USE The Diana Screen®?

The Diana Screen® is administered to all potential applicants and volunteers to help ensure that ethical boundaries between children and adults are maintained. At Florida Parishes Juvenile Detention Center, the safety and protection of the youth who have been entrusted to us is our #1 priority.
