The Jackson County IN Juvenile Detention Center is a medium to low-security detention center located at 150 E SR 250 Brownstown, IN that is operated locally by the Juvenile Justice Department and holds youths awaiting the determination of punishment for the crimes of which they are accused. Most of the adolescents are here for less than two years.

The juvenile justice system differs from the adult system, focusing on rehabilitation and recognizing the developmental differences in juveniles. It aims to protect both the child and the public and helps juveniles become productive adults.

Juveniles are detained if they pose a threat, may miss court, or violate court orders. Parental involvement is crucial for effective supervision and rehabilitation.

Key differences in terminology include "taken into custody" instead of "arrest" and "supervision" instead of "probation." Referrals usually come from law enforcement, and an intake social worker decides the juvenile's placement. An inquiry can lead to dismissal, corrective action, or court involvement.

The process includes a plea hearing, possible evaluations, a pre-trial conference, a fact-finding hearing, and a dispositional hearing to determine the case's outcome. Parents may need to cover associated costs.

The Jackson County Juvenile Detention Center is a 28-bed facility for juveniles 10 – 18 yrs. old who has been sentenced here through the Court system, as well as those awaiting placement elsewhere. This is a maximum security facility that operates a highly structured and secure environment and serves multiple jurisdictions in the State of Indiana.
