Detention Center


Evaluation Program

Central Iowa Juvenile Detention Center is now offering an Evaluation Program. As with all services, CIJDC strives to offer the absolute best for children, families, communities and customers. 

Saves Time - Youth participating in this program receive evaluations while in detention - NOT waiting for a bed at another evaluation program

Saves Money - For Counties who use another detention center the daily rate WITH the EVALUATION is CHEAPER

Everyone Benefits - Workers receive a detailed, professional evaluation that gives an in depth look into helping the youth in the future
