Besides providing necessary beds for Rutherford County youths, we can provide contract beds for surrounding Tennessee counties, the U.S. Marshals office and the Immigration and Naturalization Service.

The mission of the Rutherford County Juvenile Detention Center is to provide secure detention for status and delinquent youth offenders of Rutherford County and various other contract agencies throughout the State of Tennessee. The Rutherford County Juvenile Detention Center and its staff provide for the care, safety, and protection of youth in an environment that fosters healthy social, emotional, and intellectual development, ensures secure and safe custody, and promotes the health and well being of the youth detained. Our goals are to assure that the youth placed in detention care receive all necessary and appropriate care and supervision while providing the highest level of public safety.
