The McLaughlin Youth Center is operated and managed by the Anchorage Borough County Sheriff’s Department.
Major Steve Morris is responsible for the Detention and Court Services Bureau. 129 people are currently working for this division. They are the agency that oversees the daily operation of the McLaughlin Youth Center.
The McLaughlin Youth Center typically takes all of the Anchorage Police Departments arrestees as they do not have their own longer-term lockup facility. Not all inmates in this facility are residents of Anchorage Borough County. The McLaughlin Youth Center also accepts inmates from other law enforcement agencies from the local, state, and even federal level. Most of the time, these inmates come from an overcrowded facility or they have a court appearance in the area.
This can also shave a few days off their sentence for good behavior. Inmates who gain the trust of the correctional officers will have the opportunity to earn a little bit of money by working as laundry personnel, a cook, orderly, or in the commissary.
The facility does not just hold inmates who have already been sentenced. All inmates in the facility will typically have a 2 year or less sentence. The facility is a medium-security facility. Inmates who couldn’t post bond was declined bond, or broke their bond, probation, or parole requirements will be sent here. They also house inmates who are currently awaiting trial as well.
All inmates when they check in will receive the necessary items they need to get accustomed to jail life. The McLaughlin Youth Center provides its inmates three meals a day and medical care when needed. They will get their uniforms, blanket, towel, bed sheets, and hygiene products.
