Security is always a top priority at the Sam Perdue Juvenile Center and throughout the entire division, as our first obligation to our surrounding communities is to ensure public safety. There is a duty to the public to keep them safe and offer protection from the residential population in our custody and our staff endures a rigorous training schedule to carry out that duty and ensure public safety to the best of our ability. Our other primary goal is to provide care and services to the juveniles in our custody. Every day we face new challenges in meeting the needs of the residents that we serve. We are continually evaluating procedures and making amendments to better the operations of the facility and to meet those needs.

Sam Perdue Juvenile Center houses juvenile residents from all 55 West Virginia counties.
