DJJ's Juvenile Detention Center is a centralized pretrial detention facility, serving juveniles from most of South Carolina's 46 counties (several counties, including Richland and Charleston, operate their own long-term and short-term detention facilities). The Detention Center is a secure, short-term facility providing custodial care and treatment to male and female juveniles ages 11 to 17 detained by law enforcement agencies and the family courts prior to disposition. Youths awaiting trial on serious and violent charges reside at DJJ's Detention Center to ensure public safety and the juveniles' immediate availability for court proceedings. A new, expanded Detention Center opened in 2001, replacing a historically overcrowded facility.


LONG TERM COMMITMENT INSTITUTION

BROAD RIVER ROAD COMPLEX (BRRC)
4900 Broad River Road
Columbia, South Carolina 29212

The Broad River Road Complex in Columbia, South Carolina is the agency’s long-term commitment facility. The more than 200-acre complex is paramount in DJJ’s mission of protecting the public and reclaiming juveniles in the least restrictive environment.

The secure facility offers programs for boys and girls of all backgrounds and needs, including programs for kids with special needs, youth sex offenders, and those struggling with substance abuse.

BRRC is also home to the Communities in Schools (CIS) program, one of the first in the nation in a juvenile correctional setting. DJJ’s fully accredited school district provides continued education for juveniles, preparing students for post-secondary education. Birchwood School is where boys and girls attend middle and high school. Birchwood opened in 1975.

This campus houses the Systemic Treatment for Aggression Replacement program (STAR) and DJJ's Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) program, a cooperative effort between DJJ’s school district and the U.S. Army.

Female juveniles at BRRC live in the Willow Lane Transition House, which incorporates transitional living into the rehabilitative process. The facility originally opened as the Riverside School for Girls in 1966. For more information on the Willow Lane Program for Girls, please see our main Willow Lane page.
