We protect our community from juvenile offenders by providing a safe and secure environment through integrity and professional service.
The Medina County Juvenile Detention Center provides a safe, secure environment for detained youths. While in the care of the facility, our diligent staff will hold youths accountable for their actions in a dignified and caring manner. Youths are encouraged to take responsibility for their actions and develop responsible behaviors, including better decision making, so that they may successfully re-integrate into our community upon release. Care, supervision, education and rehabilitative services are a hallmark of the Medina County JDC.
Judge Kevin W. Dunn
The Medina County Juvenile Detention Center is a 30-bed, maximum security facility whose mission is to protect our community from juvenile offenders by providing a safe and secure environment through integrity and professional service. It is the philosophy of the Medina County Juvenile Court that detention is to be used as a last resort, and principally for youth who have committed serious offenses and are a risk of harm to themselves and/or the community. While the detention center is not a treatment facility, it is our philosophy that we do all we can to make a positive impact on our youth in hopes of changing their lives for the better - permanently. It is our pleasure to serve Medina County.
Superintendent Ronald V. Stollar
