Welcome to Youth Detention Services.  It is our mission to provide Louisville Metro’s youth with structured quality care while navigating the local juvenile justice system.  While in our care, we promise to treat the youth of this community with respect and dignity and provide for their physical, social, and psychological needs.


Please take your time touring our Department’s web page.  There is very good information available to you-- everything from visitation schedules to volunteer programs.  If you are interested in becoming a volunteer or know of good programs for youth, please feel free to contact us through the links available on this website.
