Document Description
Note: Recirculated The proposed county Juvenile Justice Campus redevelopment project would include redevelopment and reorganization of the Juvenile Justice Campus, a 31.49-acre parcel, which currently includes the Kearney Mesa Juvenile Detention Facility, formerly the San Diego County Juvenile Hall. The project objectives include development of a juvenile detention design and specification guidance consistent with current juvenile rehabilitation and development models, trends in juvenile arrests and detention, ages of youth offenders, nature of crimes, and effectiveness of intervention programs. The project site is located in the community of Birdland within the city of San Diego. The KMJDF is one of two 24-hour, max security, juvenile detention facilities operated in the county, has a max capacity of 359 male and female juveniles, and has been housing juvenile offenders since 1954. Services offered at KMJDF include housing, intake Booking Release, S.O.A.R Academy, and various rehabilitation programs. Parking lots serve staff and visitors to the KMJDF, Probabtion Center, adjacent off-site healthcare facility staff and visitors, and a secured judge's parking lot for the state of CA Juvenile Courthouse.
