Juvenile Justice Complex

Our Mission

The Terrebonne Parish Juvenile Justice Complex is established to provide short-term care in the secured custody of juveniles who are accused, adjudicated pending court action, awaiting transfer to another facility, and who cannot be served in an open setting. Specifically, the facility's goals are the following:

  • provide for the juveniles' basic needs such as shelter, food, clothing, and medical care
  • prevent the intentional abridgement of the juveniles' legal rights during their detainment
  • provide for the physical, emotional, religious, educational, and social needs of the juveniles during detainment
  • house the juveniles in a safe and humane environment, maintaining the level of security necessary to prevent escape and assure that the juveniles live free of fear from assault or intimidation by staff or other juveniles
