The Yuba-Sutter Juvenile Hall provides juvenile
detention services to the communities of Yuba and Sutter Counties. The
facility has operated since 1976 under a Joint Powers Agreement between
the two counties. Yuba County Probation is the administrative agency
responsible for the management and daily operation of the facility. The
Juvenile Hall is a 60 bed, 24-hour secure detention facility providing
detention services for Yuba, Sutter and Colusa Counties. The facility is
located at 1023 14th Street, in Marysville. The Juvenile Hall is a
temporary holding facility for youth who are pending disposition before
the Juvenile Court. Although a small number of youth are serving court
ordered commitments, the majority of the youth detained in the facility
are pending Juvenile Court proceedings.
The Juvenile Correctional Officers, medical and mental
health staff, school teachers, and other facility support staff make
every effort to address the social, behavioral, psychological, and
emotional needs of the detained minors. Their shared goal is to provide
services that will assist the youth in successfully reintegrating back
into the community.
