Kootenai County Juvenile Detention Center basic information to help guide you through what you can do for your inmate while they are incarcerated. The facility's direct contact number: 208-446-1900

The Kootenai County Juvenile Detention Center is a medium-security detention center located at 210 E Dalton Ave Dalton Gardens, ID which is operated locally by the Kootenai County Sheriff's Office and holds inmates awaiting trial or sentencing or both. Most of the sentenced inmates are here for less than two years. Kootenai County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, municipalities, the US Marshal's Service and the Dalton Gardens Police Department who do not have their own long-term lock-up.

The Juvenile Detention Center assures the safety and security of our community by detaining juvenile offenders. The facility serves the counties of: Benewah, Boundary, Kootenai, and Shoshone.

Staff at the facility provide direct supervision and guidance to the residents through supportive encouragement and instruction. Staff assists juveniles in cultivating appropriate social, behavioral, and interpersonal skills useful in community living.

Within 24 hours of admission, JDC rules and expectations are explained. A "level system" comprised of four steps is implemented to give residents the opportunity to learn accountability. With each level increase, more responsibilities and privileges are acquired.

The facility provides multiple programs to the residents to encourage positive interpersonal development. Our local school district provides a school program with 2 full time teachers, so the residents can continue working toward their high school diploma. Other classes include: Physical Education, Life Skills, Anger Management and Faith based programming.

Although the residents are in a maximum security facility, The Detention Center can prove to be a positive learning experience for delinquent youth.

Juveniles may receive mail and are given 2 stamps per week if they wish to send mail. Additional stamps can be brought in for them if desired. A return address is required and must include full name & address of sender.
