JEFFERSON COUNTY JUVENILE DETENTION CENTER
Hillsboro, MO

GGA was selected by Jefferson County to design a new Youth Detention and Treatment Center. Mr. Goldberg previously designed the County’s Adult Detention Center in 1988. The new juvenile facility allows for flexible distribution of youth offenders into five distinct groups: secure detention, secure treatment, special needs and status offenders and short term holding/observation, all within an efficient and cost-effective building structure. Metal cells with special vandal-resistant coatings and individual showers were arranged into separate pods for classification flexibility, safety and ease of expansion.
