Custody services provide shelter and detention to youth. The Shelter / detention facility operates as a 24 hour a day program which houses both youth charged with criminal conduct and youth in need of shelter care. Intake, assessment, and custody decisions are made on all youth entering the facility and program services are provided as appropriate. Youth who are admitted to shelter receive health care, education services, treatment services and recreational opportunities. Detention, while a secure lock down facility, also provides these services in a separate section of the building. Custody services are provided through licensing with the state Department of Human Services and are within state guidelines and regulations.
