The original La Paz Juvenile Detention Center was constructed back in 1983. This building was in use until the new (and latest) building was built back in February of 2008. The building started construction back in the fall of 2006.
Back then they could only hold approximately 66 inmates at any given time. The La Paz Juvenile Detention Center started housing inmates back in 1994. These inmates were broken down into 54 males and 12 females. This was the La Paz County Sheriff’s Office first full-service jail.
Their kitchen is inspected twice a year. The meals in the facility cost on average $1,57. The kitchen will serve over 83,000 meals every year. The La Paz Juvenile Detention Center has a full-service kitchen. The La Paz County contracts with a local licensed dietitian to make sure that every inmate gets their mandatory 2,400 calories a day.

The La Paz Juvenile Detention Center accepts inmates from surrounding municipalities and towns when there are no rooms in city jails. Majority of the inmates that are already sentenced have sentences less than two years.
