Scott County Juvenile Diversion Programs - Ribbon Cutting

The Scott County Board of Supervisors will be conducting a ribbon cutting ceremony to recognize the completion of the Scott County Juvenile Diversion Programs space. The ceremony will take place at 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday October 31, 2017 at 500 W 4th Street, the east side of the building.

Following the ribbon cutting Juvenile Detention and Diversion Program Staff will lead a tour of the new space.

Space at the Scott County Annex building became available when Secondary Roads relocated their administrative offices to their Eldridge facility and Planning and Development moved to newly renovated space at the Scott County Administrative Center. This ribbon cutting marks the completion of a two-phase project. The Juvenile Diversion space will be used to provide community based detention alternative programs, designed to reduce recidivism and divert youth from secure confinement when possible. These programs will provide transitional counseling for youth returning from long term placement, as well as counseling for anger issues and negative thinking patterns. Programs will provide structured activities including supervised community service to restore some of the damage juveniles have caused in the community.

The Architect firm for this project is Wold Ruck-Pate and the General Contractor is Precision Builders.

Additional questions can be directed to Jeremy Kaiser at 563-326-8687.
