The Juvenile Detention Center (JDC) assures the safety and security of our community by detaining juvenile offenders. The facility serves the counties of: 

  • Benewah
  • Boundary
  • The Coeur d'Alene Tribe
  • Kootenai
  • Latah
  • Shoshone
Juvenile Detention Center

Staff at the facility provide direct supervision and guidance to the residents through supportive encouragement and instruction. Staff assists juveniles in cultivating appropriate social, behavioral, and interpersonal skills useful in community living.

Within 24 hours of admission, JDC rules and expectations are explained. A "level system" comprised of four steps is implemented to give residents the opportunity to learn accountability. With each level increase, more responsibilities and privileges are acquired.

Positive Interpersonal Development Programs

The facility provides multiple programs to the residents to encourage positive interpersonal development. Our local school district provides a school program with 2 full time teachers, so the residents can continue working toward their high school diploma. Other classes include: 

  • Anger Management
  • Faith based programming
  • Life Skills
  • Physical Education

Although the residents are in a maximum security facility, The Detention Center can prove to be a positive learning experience for delinquent youth.

Juvenile Telephone System

Juveniles can only call numbers that have been approved and added by our staff. Be sure to contact us so that we may verify your number.
