Information for Parents

The mission of the Florida Parishes Juvenile Detention Center is to provide a safe and restrictive environment for juveniles requiring secure residential detention and to insure that those detained will be available for scheduled court hearings.

The atmosphere of the detention facility shall be such that the youth will not be physically, emotionally or psychologically injured or damaged by the detention experience. The programs in the detention plan shall be developed to meet every youth’s physical, emotional, religious, educational and social needs.

The youth’s medical, dental and mental health needs will be handled as necessary on an emergency or immediate care basis. The detention program shall facilitate a continuum of care by providing necessary referrals for follow-up services.
