Regional Youth Detention Centers (RYDCs) are secure short-term centers for youth awaiting trial or waiting to enter a community program or long-term facility.

Youth Development Campuses (YDCs) are secure long-term facilities for youth sentenced or committed to DJJ custody by juvenile courts.

Community Services Offices (CSOs) are where DJJ staff members provide intake, case management, practical supervision, detention planning and aftercare supervision.
