The new detention center will be a ____ bed facility that will replace the current small facility located in the Sheriff's Office in downtown Prescott.
The Yavapai Reentry and Connections Center
is a new facility that will be constructed separate from, but in conjunction with, the new Yavapai Criminal Justice Center in Prescott, Arizona.The Reentry Center will serve individuals who are being released from jail and returning to the community.
YCSO meets the medical and mental health needs of their inmate-patients and has created a Co-located Screening/Evaluation Center, and Re-Entry Facility as part of the CJC. The CJC along with community collaborations can meet the needs of high-risk individuals, to reduce recidivism, minimize justice involvement, and/or prevent their reentry into the justice system altogether. With innovative initiatives like Reach Out, and the Mental Health Coalition programs, YCSO is giving the criminal justice system and Yavapai County citizens a real “proof of concept”.
Through the generous funding of the AZ Attorney General’s Office, Yavapai Sherriff’s Office’s Camp Verde Detention Center has begun a remodel to incorporate a Reentry Center with the same model and goal to be available for individuals upon release in the Verde area.
