Correctional officers in Kings County Juvenile Center are armed with mace and trained to use physical force to protect themselves and other inmates from violence. 

The men and women being held in the Kings County Juvenile Center are either awaiting trial or have been sentenced in the Kings County Court System already and been sentenced to one year or less. 

When an inmate is sentenced to a year or more, they are transferred to the /state-prisons/california or the Federal Bureau of Prisons
