Juvenile Detention Fees

Juvenile Detention Fees


Sioux City, IA (AP) — Woodbury County will now charge outside entities more to house young offenders at its juvenile detention center.
Starting Aug. 24, the northwestern Iowa county will charge agencies $150 a day per young person, up from the current $100. The is move expected to generate an additional $100,000 a year for the county.
Officials say the new rate is in line with what other facilities charge. The Cherokee facility charges $150 per juvenile a day, and the center at Council Bluffs charges $165.
