Texas Juvenile Detention Center

The state of Texas has three types of juvenile correctional facilities. They have juvenile detention centers called institutions; then, they have halfway houses for after release to help youth offenders transition back into society. They also have group homes called district locations.

The Texas Juvenile Justice Department (TJJD) is the government agency in charge of all youth offenders, facilities, and all Texas juvenile inmate records. They do not list any private inmate information online, so it is not possible to perform a Texas juvenile detention center inmate search. Instead, you must contact the TJJD or the facility directly.

Along with supervision, these facilities offer different levels of custody and education, counseling, help with addictions, mental health, and physical healthcare services, and other rehabilitative programs.

The TJJD’s mission is about: “Transforming young lives and creating safer communities.” They accomplish this through the following core values:

  • Justice.
  • Safety.
  • Integrity.
  • Partnership.
  • Innovation.
