"We are making the Medina community a better place by inspiring troubled youth to become responsible, productive citizens"

The Medina County Juvenile Detention Center is a 30-bed, maximum security facility whose mission is to protect our community from juvenile offenders by providing a safe and secure environment through integrity and professional service.  It is the philosophy of the Medina County Juvenile Court that detention is to be used as a last resort, and principally for youth who have committed serious offenses and are a risk of harm to themselves and/or the community.  While the detention center is not a treatment facility, it is our philosophy that we do all we can to make a positive impact on our youth in hopes of changing their lives for the better - permanently.  It is our pleasure to serve Medina County.   ~Ron Stollar, Superintendent
