For the fifth year in a row, the Bradley County Juvenile Detention Center has received a perfect score from the Tennessee Department of Children Services Licensing Unit.

This audit consists of records evaluation as well as a building evaluation.

The audit is given each year to inspect employee records, background records, and fingerprint records.

The auditor reviews all records to ensure that all state requirements are being met. In addition to this paperwork, juvenile records are audited to ensure that legal rights have been followed, any medical attention has been given, and that an education component has been met. The physical inspection consists of looking at the security of the building, all safety codes, and the overall state of cleanliness of the building.

Capt. Andre Carr said he was very proud of the staff at the Bradley County Juvenile Detention Center.

“We have people in leadership positions who maintain accurate paperwork as well as take pride in how the facility looks and operates.”

Becca Williams plays a key role in ensuring all the paperwork is correct and up-to-date.

“This process is followed every day in our detention center,” states Carr.

“We run our facility in a manner that we could pass an inspection on any day.”

Judge Daniel Swafford strives to provide a facility that Bradley County will be proud of and that will continue to not only meet but excel the standard requirements.

“Capt. Carr does an outstanding job in maintaining the expectations set forth by the state. He and the detention center staff have set a standard for excellence and continue to go above and beyond to meet these standards. I am very proud of our Detention Center staff and this ‘zero’ findings accomplishment.”

This is Bradley County Juvenile Detention Center’s fifth consecutive perfect score.
