Richmond Juvenile Center to Stay on Probation, Audit Planned

April 12, 2012

Richmond's juvenile center will stay on state probation until January 2013.

Media outlets report that the state Board of Juvenile Justice voted Wednesday night to keep the facility on probation.

The board also directed the city to have a third party investigate whether training records were forged. The findings are to be presented to the board by its June 13 meeting, along with a plan for documenting training.

A full audit of the center also is planned.

Board members placed the facility on probation in January because of safety concerns. Since then, the city has fired former superintendent Dianne Gadow and corrected malfunctioning locks and other deficiencies.
