COVID-19 UPDATE May 5, 2020: Effective May 10, 2020, we will begin non-contact visitation for parents and legal guardians. Instructions will be communicated to those individuals. All non-security personnel and contractors are still being asked to stay home and practice social distancing. While there is no vaccine for the coronavirus, the best way to prevent illness is to avoid exposure. Frequent hand washing and avoidance of touching one’s eyes, nose or mouth is crucial. Avoiding other people who are sick and unnecessary travel are additional ways to reduce possible exposure.
We will provide secure custody for and care of juveniles in a safe healthy environment, while protecting the community. As an integral part of the rehabilitation process, supervision, guidance, and counseling are used to control and prevent delinquency by promoting personal responsibility, social accountability, and emotional growth.
Make sure to check back often as we will update this site frequently. We feel that public awareness of our operation is important as we strive to be a good neighbor.
We are a 24 bed secure detention facility operated under the authority granted by the New River Valley Juvenile Detention Commission consisting of the owner jurisdictions of the city of Radford and the counties of Giles, Montgomery and Pulaski. The owner jurisdictions pool financial resources to provide for the delivery of juvenile detention services to meet the philosophy and mission of the Commission.
