Juvenile Detention Facility

Detention Facility

History

In September 2001, the Bedford County Sheriff’s Department, in conjunction with the Juvenile/General Sessions Judge’s Office, began locally housing juveniles for DCS and surrounding counties. Our mission is to provide a safe and secure environment for our students. The center also protects the community by securely holding juveniles who have been determined by the courts to pose a threat to themselves, their families and/or public safety.
