Skagit County Juvenile Detention basic information to help guide you through what you can do for your inmate while they are incarcerated. The facility's direct contact number: 360-416-1230

The Skagit County Juvenile Detention is a medium to low-security detention center located at 605 S 3rd St Mount Vernon, WA 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.

MISSION STATEMENT - Skagit County Juvenile Detention will provide a safe and secure environment for all residents. All admissions will be carefully screened pursuant to the Revised Code of Washington (RCW) and to administrative guidelines. Procedures and policies will be in line with RCW, case law, court rules, constitutional rights and human rights. Consideration for the rights and feelings of parents/guardians will also be a priority. An educational program as mandated by RCW will be provided.

This facility is committed to going beyond RCW mandates. We are committed to providing detention structure and programs aimed at teaching residents how to control and modify their behavior. Programs offered in detention cover a wide variety of topics but all are aimed at expanding the resident's view of his/her world. The goal is, in conjunction with community probation and parole, to enhance the youth's chances of a successful re-entry into the community.

Juveniles are given a toothbrush, comb, bar of soap, toilet paper, cup, deodorant, towel, and cards. Other supplies are given as needed. Soap & shampoo will be given at shower times. Parents/guardians are not allowed to bring any personal belongings or supplies.
