Culpeper Juvenile Detention Center
Virginia Department of Juvenile Justice, Culpeper, Virginia
The Culpeper Juvenile Detention Center, a state facility, is unique because of its location on the same site as the local detention center, and within the same secure perimeter. The approach results in an economy of scale and allows for some centralization of necessary services. Both facilities are served by a single kitchen, laundry, warehouse/maintenance area, perimeter fence system, fire alarm system, and parking lot. Because of the size of the facility, it was considered desirable to break the complex down into essentially three living unit zones, each with separate movement paths and entry points to programs and services.
