Sheriff Brown attends event at the Rockdale Regional Youth Detention Center

Sheriff Brown attended the first Annual Leading Lady Dance at the Rockdale Youth Detention Center on August 5, 2017.  The event provided a night of fun, laughter and love for the youth.
Every youth had a special Leading Lady or staff to attend the event.  They escorted their Leading Ladies into the gymnasium with pride and they took a picture with Commissioner Avery Niles.

“The young Sirs performed their dance at the start of the program and surprised their Leading Lady with a rose at the end”.  There were several speakers who inspired the youth at this distinguished event which included Commissioner Niles, Facility Administration, Advisory Council, Sheriff Brown, and some of the youth.

“Regional Youth Detention Centers (RYDC) provides temporary, secure care and supervision to youth who have been charged with offenses or who have been adjudicated delinquent and are awaiting placement.  In addition, youth who have been committed to the custody of DJJ are sometimes placed in an RYDC while awaiting treatment in a community program or a long-term facility”.
