Welcome to the Pinal County Youth Justice Center Virtual Tour. This facility can house up to 96 juveniles, ages 8-17.

The Pinal County Youth Justice Center is the temporary placement of a youth accused of a delinquent act, while awaiting the final outcome of his or her case in court. The purpose of Youth Justice Center is to house youth who, by virtue of their alleged offenses or documented prior histories, pose a serious public safety or flight risk.

The Youth Justice Center is only used when NECESSARY, for those youth that will:  

  •  Pose community safety issues if released until their appointed court date
  •  Fail to show up for their appointed court date
  •  Re-offend or get re-arrested if released until their appointed court date.

(When you are done with this tour, you can learn more about advisory, adjudication and disposition hearings by viewing the Juvenile Court tab on this tour or going through the Juvenile Court Tour on this site.)
