As a parent/guardian of a resident of the Perry Multi-County Juvenile Facility (PMCJF), you may have many questions about the facility, program, and rules. The purpose of this website is to provide you with as much information about the facility and what your child will experience, as possible.  We have included a downloadable Resident Handbook on the Intake Forms tab.  I encourage you to read the Resident Handbook so you will be aware of the facility program, rules and mission involving your child.

First and foremost, the safety and well-being of our residents and the staff is my first priority.   Rest assured that your child will be treated fairly at all times. However, PMCJF is a juvenile corrections facility and all residents’ movements are restricted. Residents are closely supervised and follow rigid rules. Violation of facility rules and regulations will always receive consequences.  However if you as a parent or guardian have a concern or question we have included a link below that will allow you to contact me directly via e-mail.

The length of each resident’s stay at our facility depends upon the juvenile’s behavior, attitude, and willingness to work the program. It is the goal of the entire staff that each resident successfully complete the program and return to their community. We will make every effort to assist the resident in making the life changes necessary to avoid future criminal behavior.

If you have any concerns about the safety of a resident being or potentially being sexually abused, assaulted or harassed, you may file an administrative grievance on behalf of the resident. You must include your name, your relationship to the resident and provide specific details concerning the allegations of sexual misconduct.   Use the mailto: link below to contact me with this information.  This information will be sent to me directly and will receive my full attention, including referral to law enforcement.    If you choose you may contact me directly by phone or mail as well.

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to speak with a staff member or you may contact me at any time.  Also please visit our Frequently Asked Questions tab.  It is provided to give you information as to visitation times, clothing requirements, and phone call days and times.

Sincerely,

Elizabeth Zinn

Director-Perry Multi County Juvenile Facility
