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.
The Rutherford County Juvenile Detention Center (RCJDC) shall be committed to a zero-tolerance standard for all forms of sexual abuse/assault/misconduct/harassment or rape within the facility. RCJDC is committed to reducing the risk of these actions through the federal Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA)."
