Rutherford County Juvenile Detention Visitation Update

Rutherford County Departments are open but closed to the public beginning 4-1-2020 to limit exposure to the Covid-19 virus. As such, we are temporarily suspending visitation with detained youth. The only visitation allowed will be between the detainees and their attorneys of record. Attorney visits will be no-contact via video or in the no-contact visitation room. These visits must be pre-scheduled during business hours Monday through Friday from 8am – 4pm. As we are responding to rapid changes, the next scheduled re-evaluation of this closure will be on April 19th. As always, detained youth can receive communications via telephone.


About Us

The Rutherford County Juvenile Detention Center is a 64-bed facility, located in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. We provide secure housing for juveniles who are awaiting court dispositions or transportation to a permanent placement.

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.
