JDC - Juvenile Detention Center

In early 1997, the Yell County Sheriff's Department opened it's brand new juvenile detention center. The 24 bed facility can house both male and female inmates for agencies inside Yell County, as well as elsewhere in the state of Arkansas.

Along with providing a much needed facility for the county, the center has helped to deter juvenile crime within the county. The center now gives Law Enforcement the capability to house juveniles that otherwise might have been released into the community soon after committing crimes.
