About the DJJ Juvenile Detention Center
The DJJ Juvenile Detention Center, located in the city of Columbia, in Aiken County, South Carolina is a medium to maximum-security facility.
This Detention Center is a centralized pretrial detention facility for juveniles from most of South Carolina's 46 counties (several counties, including Richland and Charleston, operate their own long-term and short-term detention facilities).
Additionally, youths awaiting trial on more serious or violent charges reside at DJJ’s Detention Center to ensure public safety and the juveniles' immediate availability for court proceedings.
This is a short-term facility that provides custodial care and treatment to male and female juveniles ages 11 to 17 who are detained by law enforcement agencies and the family courts prior to disposition. Juveniles attend school right at the Center while they are detained.
Families can obtain information from the DJJ County office managing the case if the youth was detained with a Family Court Order. For youth that are held with an arrest warrant or bond, their
information can be accessed through the arresting law enforcement agency or the solicitor’s office. In either case, the assigned social worker can provide assistance.
Each youth will receive a brief mental health screening upon admission to the Detention
Center. A master’s level social worker reviews, and if a mental health concern is identified, a referral will be made to the Detention Center psychologist, DJJ psychiatrist, mental health liaison stationed at the detention center, or to other applicable services.
The primary objective of the mental health screening is to ensure the emotional well-being of youth in detention and to provide linkage to appropriate community-based services for the youth upon release from detention.
Convicted and Sentenced Inmates
Inmates that are convicted of a misdemeanor and/or sentenced to less than one year of a state crime serve their time in the jail.
Illegal immigrants convicted of a state or federal crime will first do their time, then may be transferred into ICE custody for deportation.
This facility, known as "DJJ Juvenile Detention Center" is also known as South Carolina Juvenile Detention Center, Department of Juvenile Justice, (serves all 46 SC counties, except Richland & Charleston), Aiken County Juvenile Detention Ctr, Aiken County Juvenile Detention Ctr, South Carolina, Aiken.
