Daily Secure and Specialized Secure Bed Capacity and Potential Availability

Bed capacity reflects the most recent maximum operational beds available on the date this is published. Available beds reflect the beds available at the time of the chart update. Facilities may “flip” units to accommodate changing population needs, so capacity in each category may vary day to day.


This chart is intended as a guide only and does not make representations that beds will available at the time any county is seeking to admit a youth. Law enforcement and detention-administering agencies must contact the facility directly before transporting a youth to the facility. Please call each facility directly. Contact information can be found in the Secure and Specialized-Secure Detention Facilities directory.
