Calcasieu Parish Juvenile Justice Services

Lake Charles, Louisiana

The Calcasieu Parish Office Juvenile Justice Services houses 38 offenders in 5 pods as well as the Juvenile Services for the parish including offices for probation, drug court offices, social services/truancy, and assessment services.

The facility provides an abundance of daylighting in all areas by looking onto a central court yard which creates a campus feel. This allows for the buildings to be the secure perimeter in lieu of fencing. The offender areas have a large contact visitation, half court gym, learning center (class rooms and multi activity), kitchen, medical suite and a youth intake area which accommodates three (3) Massachusetts Youth Screening Instrument (MAYSI) rooms, large intake desk and ample property storage.
