The St. James Youth Center is situated in St. James, Louisiana. The West Baton Rouge Parish County Sheriff’s Office is the law enforcement agency responsible for maintaining the day to day operations of the St. James Youth Center.
The St. James Youth Center is a medium-security facility. The facility operates on a 24 hours a day basis. The St. James Youth Center accepts inmates from other law enforcement agencies on a local, state, and even federal level. The St. James Youth Center frequently takes in inmates from the St. James Police Department as they do not have their own lockup.
The majority of the inmates housed in the St. James Youth Center are waiting for their trial to start, going through their trial, and inmates who are waiting to be sentenced. There is a handful of inmates that have already been sentenced. The St. James Youth Center will only keep inmates if they have a sentence shorter than two years. If an inmate is a sentence to a sentence longer than two years, they will be transferred to a state prison in Louisiana.
The St. James Youth Center has what they call a Pay for Stay. The Pay for Stay is where the inmate will be required to pay for the time they serve. When an inmate is booked into the Kandiyohi, they will be signing a form that acknowledges that they understand there is a charge of $20 per day. The inmate will have a 20% discount if they pay their bill in full between 7 days of when they are released from the facility. If an inmate does not pay within the 7 days, the St. James Youth Center will send it to a collection agency.
