Untitled Page
The Juvenile Temporary Detention Center provides temporary secure housing for youth from the age of 10 through 16 years, who are awaiting adjudication of their cases by the Juvenile Division of the Cook County Courts. The Center also provides care for youth who have been transferred from Juvenile Court jurisdiction to Criminal Court. These youth would otherwise be incarcerated in the county jail.

The Juvenile Temporary Detention Center provides the children with a safe, secure and caring environment with programs and structure that enhance personal development and improve opportunity for success upon return to the community.
