Chester County Juvenile Detention Center
The Chester County Juvenile Detention Center was designed to serve the needs of Chester County while respecting the concerns of county residents. The minimum-security facility, consisting of three male and one female detention housing units and one shelter housing unit with on-unit counselors, is designed to look and feel more like a school than a detention center. It is also fenceless and hidden from nearby residential neighbors by earth berms and landscaping.
The Center’s Program Space includes administrative offices, counselor offices, intake/discharge, medical suite, kitchen, dining/multi-purpose rooms, five classrooms, chapel, full-size gymnasium, enclosed outdoor exercise yard, laundry and shop.
