Mission
Mission
The mission of the Churchill County Juvenile Detention Facility is to provide for the temporary care, custody, and control of delinquent youth in a safe and secure environment pending a resolution of their case. It is further the mission of the Churchill County Juvenile Detention Facility to provide comprehensive programming geared at competency development and a safe and swift reintegration back into the community.

State law mandates that the facility be constructed and conducted as nearly like a home as possible. Within this framework, our mission is twofold:
  • Protecting the community by securely housing juveniles that may be or have been involved in activities injurious to the public
  • Providing for the safe and secure detention of juveniles detained within the facility

Goals
Our facility's goals are to:
  • Provide for the juvenile's basic needs including shelter, food, clothing, and medical care
  • Protect the rights of juveniles during residence
  • Provide for the educational, physical, emotional, and social needs of detained juveniles
  • Administer programs, rules, discipline, and controls in a firm, fair, and consistent manner
  • Nurture and encourage acceptable behavior
