Detention Centers

Kentucky's juvenile detention system provides pre-trial detention of all alleged delinquent juveniles and ensures state-operated detention centers to be available for all counties. DJJ also offers a wide range of alternatives to secure detention programs and services are available in each area to serve juveniles who do not require secure placement -- thus, creating a detention custody continuum. Alternative programs may include intensive community supervision, home detention, home incarceration, staff secure shelters and/or foster homes.

If a youth is ordered detained at the detention hearing, KY DJJ staff screen the youth using a risk assessment evaluation tool. If the youth scores as suitable for a custody option other than secure detention, the facility’s Detention Alternatives Coordinator (DAC) makes a decision as to which option is most suitable based upon youth and family’s circumstances.
