Juvenile Detention and Assessment Center (JDAC)

The Central Valley Juvenile Detention and Assessment Center (CVJDAC) has a rated capacity of 260 and a budgeted capacity of 220. The difference between rated capacity and budgeted capacity is a reflection of lower populations, changes in staff-to-youth ratios, and required programming. 

CVJDAC is primarily staffed with Probation Corrections Officers and Probation Corrections Supervisor I/IIs. Following the intake process, youth complete an orientation. They are provided information about the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA), facility procedures, rules, behavior expectations, services, and programming. Orientation is intended to reduce rule violations and to provide a safe and secure environment for both youth and staff.

Detained youth have access to educational services under an agreement with the San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools (SBCSS). Youth are also provided comprehensive behavioral health through the Forensic Adolescent Service Team (FAST) and medical services. A range of social awareness programs are provided at CVJDAC.
