Youth Residential Services

Juvenile Detention Centers

CommunityWorks operates the 26-bed Cleveland County Regional Detention Center in Norman, Oklahoma, and the Pottawatomie County Regional Juvenile Detention Center in Shawnee, Oklahoma. Both juvenile detention centers are operated under the Office of Juvenile Affairs’ contract standards and oversight. 

In both juvenile detention facilities, an emphasis is placed on programming that includes compulsory education requirements instructed by a teacher from the respective school districts. Detainees in these facilities attend school daily in a designated classroom inside each facility. Incentive programs are utilized with the residents to provide both rewards for positive behaviors and interactions of residents and structure to our program.
