The Yellowstone County Detention Facility is a relatively small detention center located in Yellowstone Montana. It was built to house fewer than 200 inmates, however, an significant increase in the inmate population initiated expansion efforts, which were undertaken in 1995.
The Yellowstone County Detention Facility is primarily dedicated to containing and supervising adult offenders. Both violent and non-violent criminals are housed within this facility. Juvenile offenders are generally placed in the care of alternative juvenile detention centers throughout the state of Montana. One such juvenile hall is the Cascade County Regional Youth Services Center, located in Great Fall, Montana. This facility plays an important role in the rehabilitation of juvenile offenders, as do other juvenile halls throughout the state.
