Though every effort is made to keep juveniles in their homes and communities, occasionally juvenile offenders must be placed in secured detention. In most cases, offenders are in detention for short periods of time.
Treatment at the Juvenile Services Center works with the juvenile offender to make positive changes in his/her life. Individual case plans are developed to address the core issues surrounding the juvenile offender’s delinquent behaviors. The Juvenile Services Center offers offenders opportunities to participate in school, chemical dependency programming, cultural and gender specific programming, GED preparation and testing, and faith-based services.
Residential treatment keeps the community safe by keeping potentially violent offenders out of the community.
For any questions about juvenile residential services including detention, short term, long term, sex offender and gender specific programs, contact Dakota County Community Corrections at 651-438-8399.
