Martin Hall Juvenile Detention Facility

Martin Hall is located on the Eastern State Hospital campus in Medical Lake, Washington, approximately 20 miles southwest of Spokane. Martin Hall was constructed in 1935 and has served many purposes before its current use as a juvenile detention facility.

In Fall of 1995, nine Eastern Washington counties formed the Martin Hall consortium (MHJFB). The goal was to develop an efficient and cost effective regional detention facility to house juvenile offenders in a safe, secure and humane setting.

In April 1996, Martin Hall was leased from the state for 50 years, with an option for 50 more. The building contains 24,000 gross square feet of space including 44 juvenile dention cells, central and private visiting rooms, a booking area, medical clinic, kitchen, laundry, administration and academic education wings, and a 3,000 square foot addition for indoor exercise, intake and support spaces.

In August 1999, CCCS was awarded a contract to operate the Martin Hall Juvenile Detention Facility. CCCS began operations on November 1, 1999, resulting in the addition of 32 employees and increasing annual revenues by $1.6 million. In January 2000, CCCS began contracting with several Montana counties for services at the facility.

 
 
 
Program Goal

The goal of the MHJDF is to provide safe and secure confinement intended to hold juvenile offenders accountable for their unlawful actions. Juveniles held at the facility include those accused of an offense pending an appearance in court, juveniles adjudicated as guilty of an offense and sentenced to confinement, and other juveniles that can be legally detained by the counties.

The vision of Martin Hall Juvenile Detention Facility is to take a leadership role within the juvenile corrections field by promoting accountability for all employees and juveniles. We will do this by developing competency through progressive employee training and innovative programming that instills the social values of respect and an appreciation for individual rights.

 
Program Mission

The mission of Martin Hall is to be a professional juvenile detention facility that provides quality community service, valuable life skills, competency based treatment, and basic education to youth in our custody. It also will provide secure detention of juvenile offenders in a safe and supportive environment following the laws of Washington State and meet the detainees' health, safety and welfare needs in a maximum security facility.

Correctional programming and treatment staff have established the following objectives to enable MHJDF to best achieve program goals:

Emphasis is on evaluation assessment, diagnosis and crises handling of behavioral/mental problems. While the facility does not engage in treatment, it offers a variety of programs and activities.

 
Program Description

Martin Hall provides for the publics' protection with its high security perimeter to guard against escape, and appropriate space between the facility and the public area. The facilities' internal environment promotes feelings of safety for staff and juvenile offenders by moderating the elements of hostile activity and is conducive to programming in the organization of programming elements offered. The operational requirements are reinforced by line-of-sight staff supervision housing designs.
