The primary mission of the Williamson County Juvenile Detention Center is to protect  the community and rehabilitate juvenile offenders.

The Detention Center provides a short-term safe and secure environment to juveniles who are awaiting court adjudication, transfer to another jurisdiction, or who have been adjudicated as a delinquent offender. Although adjacent to the jail, all juveniles are kept out of sight and sound of adult prisoners.


The staff is comprised of nine certified and well-trained full-time officers, a supervisor, and variable hours staff as needed. At a minimum, the center has one male and one female officer on duty at all times.

Parental visiting hours are from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm and 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm daily, as circumstances allow.

The Juvenile Detention Center is located on the same site as the Juvenile Services Office and courtrooms.
