Juvenile Detention Center

About Us
The Southwest Kansas Regional Juvenile Detention Center is a 28-bed, hardware secure juvenile correctional facility located in Garden City, Ks.

The center is operated by Finney County for the benefit of 18 Counties of Southwest Kansas by virtue  of inter-local agreements or contracts. Service areas include the 16th, 25th, and 26th judicial districts of Kansas.

The Program
The Center is licensed by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment to provide secure detention services for youth, aged 10-17. Youth placed in the facility typically are charged with offenses of a criminal nature and placement in other non-secure settings within the community have been determined inappropriate given the need to protect society and the personal situations of the youth. To learn more about the Finney County Juvenile Detention Center visit The Juvenile Program.

The Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) is a federally mandated law that came into effect on August 20, 2013.

The SWJDC is making significant progress toward full PREA compliance in the areas of prevention, detection and response to incidents of sexual abuse and harassment. Responses to reports of sexual abuse have been standardized statewide with the Juvenile Justice Authority.
