The Department of Adult and Juvenile Detention (DAJD) takes emergency actions as necessary to ensure the safety of everyone at our correctional facilities. Our actions are based on the recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as Public Health – Seattle and King County.
We work with our partners in the criminal justice system to quickly and safely decrease the number of people who are in custody. This provides our staff with more opportunity to ensure health and safety. Our partners in the criminal justice system are the courts, public defenders, prosecutors, corrections, and law enforcement.
The number of youth at the Clark Children and Family Justice Center is low enough that each youth has their own dorm room. Staff provide the youth with individualized care.
