Juvenile Secure Detention Center

The City of Newport News Juvenile Secure Detention Center was opened in January 2005 to provide a positive experience for detained youth in a safe and secure environment, while protecting public safety. The state-of-the-art facility utilizes the best practices in juvenile justice and features cutting edge technology. The program includes school for approximately 110 juveniles during the traditional school year. Evening activities include visitations, religious services, physical recreation, group sessions and counseling. In alignment with its standard operations, when the center’s compressors failed, administrators implemented best practices to get systems back up and running for the comfort of its detainees and staff.
