The primary function of the Mendocino County Juvenile Hall is to provide for the physical and emotional care of incarcerated youth in Mendocino County pursuant to California Code of Regulations, Title 15 and Title 24 standards. Youth are detained in juvenile hall pending their Juvenile Court Hearings while they are serving short-term commitments, or awaiting out-of-home placement in a foster/group home, camp or other institution. The Mendocino County Juvenile Hall houses up to 40 youths and as mandated, it is operated with as homelike an environment as possible.
