The Bedford County TN Juvenile Detention Center is a medium to low-security detention center located at 101 Lane Pkwy Shelbyville, TN that is operated locally by the Juvenile Justice Department and holds youths awaiting the determination of punishment for the crimes which they are accused. Most of the adolescents are here for less than two years.

The Bedford County TN Juvenile Detention Center is a facility supervised by the Tennessee Commission on Children and Youth is the state advisory group responsible for implementing the provisions of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (JJDP) Act in Tennessee.

The four core requirements of the act are to:

  1. Deinstitutionalize status offenders;
  2. Remove children from adult jails;
  3. Separate children from adult offenders; and
  4. Reduce disproportionate minority contact (DMC) within the juvenile justice system.

To assure compliance with these requirements, TCCY conducts periodic on-site monitoring of all jails and detention facilities in Tennessee.

TCCY also performs on-site monitoring of programs awarded funds through TCCY and distributes state and federal funds to counties and community programs to prevent delinquency or improve services for children involved with juvenile courts.

TCCY oversees the statewide and local disproportionate minority contact task forces, which work with local communities to address the overrepresentation of minorities at all applicable points of contact within the juvenile justice system. Also, in collaboration with other state agencies, the courts, schools, and community-based organizations, TCCY provides training and technical assistance on grant applications and compliance with the JJDP act.

A list of Juvenile Detention Centers, Temporary Holding Facilities and Youth Development Centers is also available.
