Where Do The Juveniles Stay?

When youth are securely detained for offenses committed as a juvenile, they will serve their stay in Washington County Juvenile Detention.  In addition to education, they are provided with programming which addresses some of the issues associated with delinquency.

By court order, your child is being detained at Washington County Juvenile Detention, which is located at 500 North Schmidt Road, West Bend, Wisconsin.  The Detention Facility can be entered off the lobby of the Jail Entrance. The lobby entrance has red doors. 

Visitation for family members at Juvenile Detention is non-contact. Visitation must be pre-scheduled and is available in half hour time periods.

Visiting is available daily from 1:30pm to 4:30pm and from 6:30pm-8:30pm. To schedule a visit call the Juvenile Pod Control at 262-306-2247. If you just show up without prearranging a visit, you will not be guaranteed an opportunity to visit your child.

Each living area is equipped with a telephone for making out-going collect calls. Juvenile Detention does not assume any responsibility if your son or daughter cannot call you because of a block on your phone. Arangements to put money on account for phone services may be made with ICS/Customer Service at 888-506-8407.
