About Detention

The Detention Facility provides a safe, secure, and rehabilitative environment for only those youth determined to be of potential risk to themselves or the community, while employing the least restrictive methods to serve the best interests of each child.  Detention Administration and staff provide around-the-clock supervision.

The facility provides single-room housing for up to 25 youth, along with daily programming which includes physical fitness, life skills training, art classes, optional spiritual meetings, and various other activities.  The youth also participate in a year-round educational program provided by a staff of certified teachers. 

The Detention Facility is located at the Richland County Juvenile Justice Center, 411 South Diamond Street, Mansfield, Ohio  44902.
