The Superintendent oversees the immediate management and business matters for Institutional Services at the Juvenile Detention Facility located at 2880 East Gibson Road, Woodland, California and the Alternative Sentencing.
With the combined efforts of his staffing of over ninety, (80 sworn Peace Officers, 8 armed Officers, and Administrative Support Staff) public safety needs are met for minors in detention, provision of supervised community work projects for alternative sentencing, and public protection when transporting in-custody adult and juvenile defendants.
The Alternative Sentencing Program (ASP) contracts work with non-profit sites and allow court ordered defendants to perform work duties in lieu of incarceration. Additionally, this program provides beautification services for various locations throughout Yolo County.
The Transportation Unit provides transportation services of adult and juvenile defendants to and from court hearings, designated treatment or placement facilities. Transportation services are also provided for the Yolo County Sheriff’s Department.
