“The Shasta County Juvenile Rehabilitation Facility is dedicated to providing a safe and secure environment for detained youth, where professional staff hold residents accountable while encouraging them to embrace positive community values, accept responsibility and cultivate healthy relationships.  We accomplish this mission by ensuring staff serve as role models and project an appearance, attitude and behavior which creates an atmosphere conducive to positive change, and by working closely with our community partners to deliver research driven programs targeting the individual needs of our population.”

Shasta County Juvenile Rehabilitation Facility (JRF) is a 24-hour secure detention facility capable of housing up to 90 residents. Located in Redding, California, the facility is staffed by Juvenile Detention Officers who supervise the residents and are responsible for their care, custody and control. The JRF is a temporary holding facility for minors awaiting court and is operated in accordance with the regulations set forth in the California Minimum Standards for Juvenile Facilities, Title 15. Services include, but are not limited to, academic programming, medical and behavioral health care, organized recreation, religious and volunteer services, and programming facilitated by a compliment of community-based organizations. Services within the JRF include:

  • Mental Health Services: Mental Health Services (MHS) are provided by Shasta County Mental Health and other community based organization clinicians. MHS care provides crisis intervention services, individual therapy, psychotropic medication evaluations, and monitoring of youth on psychotropic medications. 

  • Academic Programming: The Shasta County Office of Education operates a fully accredited high school program within the JRF. 

  • Alternatives to Detention: In response to evidence based practices and the growing numbers of residents booked into the JRF, the Probation Department instituted strategies to address the specifics needs of the individual and the community. A comprehensive risk assessment was introduced to determine which young offenders were appropriate for detention and which could be safely managed without being locked up prior to and during their court proceedings.   

  • Other programs offered to youth in custody:


A youth who has been arrested and tried in adult court but not convicted may petition the Court to have his/her arrest and related record sealed pursuant to 851.91 PC. The petition is available through this link:
