Juvenile Detention Center



For youth awaiting trial, this facility cared for and treated some 300 delinquent boys and young men, ages 15-17, serving as a detention center for youths awaiting trial and as a training school for youths committed by the court.



The Juvenile Detention Center closed in November of 2005, less than 4 years ago. Check out the decay in some of these buildings, there is no way that just happened in 3.5 years. Despite being shut down by the previous Governor it appears the current Governor has gone back on that slightly. The other side of this place is still active. It is surrounded by a large prison style fence so it must have been the more maximum security side. The side we went on didn't even have a fence.

They had big giant machines that used to test the sensors on cars that probably has less computing power than an iPhone. They also had big welders which probably would still work fine.
