YOUTH DETENTION CENTER

 

 

 

The youth detention center, known as the Division of Juvenile Justice Services, offers serious juvenile offenders an alternative to the juvenile justice system. The centers provide intervention, supervision and rehabilitation programs for both status offenders and delinquent youth. Status offenders are juveniles who commit acts that are illegal only because of their age, such as running away from home, continually skipping school, using tobacco and alcohol, violating curfew, and acting beyond the control of their parents. Delinquent youth are juveniles from the ages 10 to 19 who commit misdemeanor or felony acts. Additional information concerning both youth services and detention can be found under Programs & Services on the Juvenile Justice Services homepage at http://www.jjs.utah.gov/index.htm .
