You are allowed can bring in homework for your child. Books and assignments may be brought in to the Douglas County Youth Center Monday through Friday. Please leave the children’s name, the school he or she is attending, homework assignments and phone number you can be reached at. The books will be noted on the individuals property form in Admissions. Please address the books and homework to D.C.Y.C. liaison at 444-3833.

If your child requires medication, you are allowed to bring it to them. All current prescription medications are accepted. The medication will be validated with the prescribing physician’s office and chemically identified by our nurses/pharmacist. If everything is valid and our physician assistant approves, the medications will be administered to the youth.

Detainees who are not in internal disciplinary action will be allowed the opportunity to visit with parents/legal guardians, grandparents, or siblings who are over the age of 18.  These are the ONLY visitors allowed.  Siblings over 18 that have a different last name than that of the detainee must bring legal proof of relationship by producing a birth certificate before visitation will be approved.  Step-brothers and step-sisters are not allowed to visit.  Step-parents are allowed to visit if they are currently married to the biological parent.  Visits will last one hour and occur twice a week for each unit, with one visiting hour occurring on the weekend.  Detainees are restricted to two (2) visitors each visit.  The only physical contact allowed is a brief hug and holding hands during the visit.  Any other physical contact may be cause to terminate the visit.  It is the detainee's responsibility to inform their parents of their assigned visiting hours.

The visitation schedule is according to housing assignments, so it is best to call the Youth Center at 444-7492 to inquire, go to the visitation page for additional information.

If your child needs to pay a fine/bond in order to leave the detention facility, you can come through the front entrance into the lobby at the Douglas County Youth Center. A staff member will answer your request and help you. This can be done at anytime, but it is best to come during regular business hours.
