Madera County Juvenile Hall - Parents Handbook

Juvenile Hall:

The Probation Department is also responsible for operation and administration of the Juvenile Hall. Juvenile Hall is a place of detention for juvenile offenders taken into custody within the provisions of Section 602 of the Juvenile Court Law. These young people are detained for their protection or the protection of the community, pending and/or serving final disposition of their cases. Programs include temporary detention pending court disposition, holding for other agencies, and varying lengths of residential care. Treatment programs include full-time school within the Juvenile Hall for continuation of education.

Correctional Academy Program:

To be eligible for the correctional academy, the Juvenile Court Judge must order a ward committed to the program under Section 602 of the Welfare & Institutions Code. The program is a collaborative effort between the Madera County Probation Department, Madera County Office of Education, Madera County Behavioral Health Services and volunteers. The program ranges from a twelve month, eighteen month or twenty four month commitment that includes advancement phases based on leadership and behavior. The program was developed from a correctional model for troubled youth based in part on military standards.

The academy utilizes a combination of structure, discipline, physical conditioning and accountability in a nurturing approach in order to emphasize self-control and improve self-esteem. Once a youth has been committed to the academy they are referred to as cadets. There are three stages to the custody phase in which the cadets wear colored shirts according to their rank, from lowest to highest, green, brown and black. As the cadets advance in their rank they become eligible to receive additional privileges such as sibling visitation, community service details and reward field trips.

After successful completion of the in custody phase cadets graduate to the aftercare component and are placed back into their parent’s home whenever possible or an alternate living arrangement is made. The cadets are closely monitored as they may be placed on house arrest with electronic monitoring and probation staff provides intensive supervision. The cadet and their family will receive counseling services as determined by a mental health screening process and as resources allow.

Court Day School:

Any minor expelled from a school district must receive their education from a Community School under the auspices of the Superintendent of Schools. The School is separate from the traditional school setting and addresses special educational needs. The typical student in a Community School is dysfunctional in the classroom and not normally willing to accept authority. The School is located on the County property next to Juvenile Hall. The Probation Department assigns two Deputy Probation Officers to be on-site as authority figures, as well as to interact with the students, parents and staff. The Probation Department uses a portion of the facilities for a Court Day School. Minors who would otherwise be sentenced to Juvenile Hall of truancies and non-violent offenses are committed to the Court Day School and placed on electronic monitoring house arrest for a period of 90 days.
