Secure Care Facilities
Youths are ordered to a Secure Care facility by a Utah Juvenile Court Judge. Upon commitment, the Youth Parole Authority assumes responsibility. Once committed, youths are assessed to determine their rehabilitative needs and areas of focus to reduce their risk of reoffending. The length of stay in the facility and parole dates are decided by the Youth Parole Authority.
Each case is reviewed on a regularly scheduled basis. Youths placed in Secure Care are rated daily as to individual progress on treatment goals and their behavior in the facility. To help promote success, youths are provided with mental health, educational, recreational and medical services. They also have the ability to participate in other classes and programs to enhance their individual talents, to become more employable and to improve their independent living skills.
