Institutions are the facilities for the lawful custody and treatment of youth. Dallas County Juvenile Department operates four secure and three non-secure facility programs in five locations throughout Dallas County. The Institutional Services Division offers rehabilitative programming in safe environments for youth in both pre-adjudication and post adjudication phases. Specially trained supervision officers provide quality care 24 hours a day. Each program offers visitation at specific times for residents and their guardians.
