Juvenile Receiving Centers
Juvenile Receiving Centers (JRC) are located across the state for law enforcement officers to drop off arrested, delinquent, ungovernable, or runaway youth who do not meet admission guidelines for secure detention. These centers operate in partnership with the Division of Juvenile Justice Services, the Division of Child and Family Services, law enforcement, the Juvenile Court, and local communities. Upon receiving a youth, center workers immediately attempt to contact the youth’s parent (s) or guardian (s). They evaluate the youth’s immediate needs for security and care, and make referrals for services when appropriate.
