Visitation Hours & Guidelines

Visiting is a very important component of the Juvenile Detention Facility Program. Regular visits help preserve the ties between the youth in detention and their family. Youth are allowed two hours of visitation per week. Each hour must be completed on two separate visitation days. The youth are assigned to separate housing units and are only allowed visits when their housing unit is scheduled. Only parents, grandparents or legal guardians are authorized to visit.
